The shooting of Tollywood’s most-anticipated multi-starrer RRR, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, kick-started on Sunday in Hyderabad with a formal puja ceremony. The film is helmed by Baahubali director SS Rajamouli.
Megastar Chiranjeevi, who graced the event as the chief guest, gave the muhurtham clap. Legendary director K Raghavendra Rao handed over the script to the team and directed the first shot.
Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Kalyan Ram, Koratala Siva, Boyapati Srinu, Vamshi Paidipally, Venky Atluri, Suresh Babu, Allu Aravind, Shobu Yarlagadda, KL Narayana and Shyam Prasad Reddy among others graced the event.
Speaking at the RRR launch, the film’s producer DVV Danayya said, “It is a matter of honour to be producing probably the most awaited film of Indian cinema. This whole project is like a dream or maybe I can call it a dream come true. Working on a film in the combination of stars like NTR, Ram Charan and Rajamouli is something that is really exciting for me. There are already great expectations from the film with both the Nandamuri fans, Mega fans and all movie goers expecting something out of the ordinary. I promise I will make sure no stone is left unturned from my side in that regard. We will make no compromise on anything the team requires. This film will surely remain as the pride of Indian cinema. The shooting of the film will commence on November 19. The first schedule will contain NTR and Ram Charan shooting for a high-octane action episode. We will soon announce the rest of the cast.”
While MM Keeravani is composing the music of RRR, KK Senthil Kumar is cranking the camera. The crew also consists of SS Rajamouli’s father Vijayendra Prasad (screenwriter), K Srinivasa Mohan (VFX supervisor) and Sabu Cyril (production design).
