SS Rajamouli and Team RRR begin shooting Jr NTR's introduction scenes in Bulgaria
The period drama, which also stars Ram Charan in the lead, is inspired by real-life freedom fighters, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem
We recently reported that SS Rajamouli and crew began shooting in Bulgaria for RRR, his latest venture with Ram Charan and Jr NTR. Now, we hear that the team is busy filming the introduction sequences of Jr NTR in the European country. The shooting in Bulgaria will continue for a month.
Jr NTR has apparently been working out for his role in the movie as Komaram Bheem and has bulked up to better fit his character's appearance. Ram Charan will be playing Alluri Sitharama Raju, and word has it that the introductory sequences of both the leads will be shot on a large scale.
RRR is a period drama inspired by real-life freedom fighters and will see the two actors portraying these legendary characters. The film marks the first time that Rajamouli is working on a fictional drama film inspired by real life personalities. "I want to paint the entire canvas with a new brush altogether so that the universe I create contains valor, energy, and grit," the director is quoted as saying.
Aside from Jr NTR and Ram Charan, RRR also stars Alia Bhatt, who is paired opposite Ram Charan and plays a character called Sita. The film also features Ajay Devgn in a significant role.
Produced by DVV Danayya under DVV Entertainment, RRR is being made on a grand scale with a whopping budget of Rs 350-400 crore. The film will get a simultaneous worldwide release on July 30, 2020, in ten Indian languages.
