Actress Alia Bhatt who will make her Telugu debut with S.S. Rajamouli’s RRR had earlier said that her wish if working with the filmmaker has now been fulfilled. Excited to begin shooting for the film, Alia will soon join the team in Delhi.
While reports suggested that it would be yet another patriotic film, Rajamouli told a leading daily that he wanted to put a fresh spin on a patriotic story, “I wanted to paint the canvas with a new brush so that the universe I create has valour, energy, and grit.”
The Baahubali filmmaker wrapped up the film’s first schedule in Hyderabad last year and will kick off the second one in Delhi next week. According to a source close to the development, Alia joins Ram Charan and Jr NTR for the month-long schedule, which will also head to other parts of North India, along with British actress Daisy Edgar, who is romantically paired with Jr NTR. “The team will shoot at real locations in this schedule which also includes confrontation and action sequences,” the source revealed.

Ajay Devgn, who has an extended cameo in the film which is set in the pre-Independence era, joins the team after wrapping up work on his home production, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. According to the source, the actor appears in the flashback portions.
“In the first schedule, a larger-than-life action scene was shot there with Ram Charan. A part of the third schedule will be based in and around the same set,” the source added, further.
RRR will tell a fictitious story based on two freedom fighters. The film will release on July 30, 2020, in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and other Indian languages simultaneously.
