Alia Bhatt is gearing up for her next release, ‘Kalank’, which is a period-drama with an ensemble cast. She has also landed several other big projects, one of which is ‘RRR’ – a film by ‘Baahubali’ director SS Rajamouli. The actress spoke to a popular Bollywood tabloid about her experience of working for the film. Read on.
Since the film is being shot simultaneously in three languages, Alia has had to learn three languages for her role. Talking about learning Telugu for her role, she said, “I am prepping for it. It’s tough, but I think I’ll be good at it.” RRR, the film, will also star Singham actor Ajay DevGn. The film also has the legendary NTR’s son and Ram Charan in pivotal roles.
Alia Bhatt also spoke about how working with SS Rajamouli had always been on her wish list.
He was on my bucket list of directors. Not only because of Baahubali, of course, that was a very big factor but also because of his imagination. Right from Magadheera to Eega, these concepts are simply mind-blowing. He is truly an artist and understands his audience, the people he is making the film for. His emotions and story are so powerful, likewise with RRR, he has a very powerful story to tell.
Today I feel truly truly grateful.. Cannot wait to begin this beautiful journey with this stellar cast and massive team.. thank you @ssrajamouli sir for giving me this opportunity to be directed by you.. 💃💃💃💃 #RRRPressMeet https://t.co/4LylrkDBr5
