Talking about RRR, Rajamouli shared, “RRR will not dwell on the stories of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem’s rebellion that we already know. But, it will focus on what would have happened if they had met during their self-imposed exile and became friends.”

Produced by DVV Danayya, RRR will hit screens on July 30, 2020.
