You read that right. SS Rajamouli has done it again. After the massively successful ‘Baahubali’, he is back with ‘RRR’, that stars N T Rama Rao Jr, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn, and the film’s pre-release rights have registered big numbers in south India.

“@ssrajamouli”s #RRR shatters pre-release business of #Baahubali2 with huge margin. AP, Telangana collect record Rs 215 cr. Karnataka rights sold – 50cr. Overseas rights bought for 70 cr. #RRR would easily do the pre-release business of more than 400 Crores, South India and Overseas,” trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted.
It is being reported that the makers are looking at making big numbers even in the North India market, as the director has already ‘made his mark with the Baahubali franchise’.
Rajamouli casting Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn, along with Telugu stars NTR Jr and Ram Charan is proof that SS Rajamouli is looking to reach out to an all-India market. International actors Olivia Morris, Alison Doody and Ray Stevenson will also be seen in pivotal roles.
RRR will release on January 8, 2021, in 10 Indian languages. It is being touted as one of the ‘most expensive films’ ever made in India.
