Alia also revealed that working with Rajamouli is a big tick off her bucket list: “Working with Rajamouli sir is a big tick off my bucket list.. also to be alongside Ram Charan and Jr. NTR is an absolute honour.. I am very excited about this experience and also working in the south for the first time.. I begin shoot in less than a month.. I will be playing the role of Sita, and the film is set in 1920s backdrop", the Raazi actress said in a statement.
The film is set in the 1920s and the actor will soon start filming it. "I begin the shoot in less than a month. I will be playing the role of Sita and the film is set in 1920s backdrop," the statement further read.
RRR is a fictional tale about two warriors Alluri Seetharamaraju and Komaram Bheem. "The movie unveils both of them away from home (in Delhi) before they started fighting for the country. It's a pan-Indian film painted on a large canvas," read the official statement.
While Ram Charan essays the younger version of Alluri Seetharamaraja, Jr NTR will be seen as Komaram Bheem. "The idea to present the #RRR story was planted in my mind when I saw Motorcycle Diaries," said SS Rajamouli, during the press meet.
Foreign actress Daisy Edgar Jones is paired opposite Jr NTR. The makers also revealed the budget of this multi-starrer film and said: "Approximately, RRR will be made on a budget of Rs 350-400 crore," said DVV Dhanayya.
