After the humongous success of Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017), everyone is looking forward to the next release of celebrated filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli with bated breath. His next, tentatively titled RRR, is touted as another cinematic gem by the filmmaker.

There is huge hype surrounding the film for various reasons. One of them being its ensemble cast which includes the likes of Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn. If reports are to be believed, RRR is a fictitious tale which centres on two Telugu freedom fighters Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem played by Ram Charan and Jr NTR respectively.

Coming to the role which Ajay Devgn plays in the big-ticket film, sources close to the team divulge that the National Film Award-winning actor will be seen as Ram Charan’s father.

Reportedly, Ajay Devgn was initially sceptical about coming onboard to play the part as it had less screen time. However, when Rajamouli narrated to him his part, he agreed to join the cast. “He wasn’t sure because the part is not very long. It is almost like an extended cameo and he wasn’t sure about doing it. But after a narration from Rajamouli, he got excited. It was also one reason why Ajay initially had given a statement saying he wasn’t doing the film at all. Things worked out eventually,” the source added.

Produced by DVV Danayya, RRR is all set for a wide release on July 30, 2020. The film will enter theatres in 10 languages across the world.
