Seven months after stalling the shoot of the highly-anticipated film RRR, the team resumed work in Hyderabad with minimal crew members on sets on October 5. Due to the pandemic, the SS Rajamouli magnum opus got pushed ahead. Now, as the industry is adapting to the new normal, the RRR team reunited. Now, in the latest development, a leading daily's report has it that Alia Bhatt, who will be seen in the lead, will be resuming work on RRR from November. A source close to the film told the daily that the actress will wrap up Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi before diving into the multilingual film.
The source further added that Alia is learning Telugu with a local tutor as she is willing to dub her own lines. "She is currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi in Mumbai and after wrapping that up, will jump from one era to the next. She is looking forward to making her foray into Telugu cinema with this film, and has been learning the language with a local tutor as she wants to dub her own lines," the source told. As per reports, Alia plays the role of Sita and is paired opposite Ram Charan. Reportedly, she has a significant part to play in the ideological fight between the two leading men.
The source continued saying, "The team will be shooting for almost two months straight at the studio and the crew will be quarantined together. The two leads, Jr NTR and Ram Charan, who play real-life freedom fighters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju, will be shooting off and on. There will be plenty of drama, romance and of course, confrontation between the two heroes.”
RRR directed by SS Rajamouli and produced DVV Danayya will release in 10 languages. The film's star cast also includes Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Olivia Morris, Alison Doody and Ray Stevenson in the lead roles. The film, set in the 20th century, was scheduled to release on January 8, 2021, after multiple delays. However, it seems RRR won't make it to the theatres as per the schedule.
