RRR, which had been in making for close to four years, is a fictitious account of the lives of independence warriors Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, played by Ram Charan and Jr NTR, respectively. The pan-India film also features Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in important extended cameos.
After facing several setbacks due to the coronavirus pandemic, the high-profile film made its entry into cinemas on March 25 and just recently, on July 2, completed 100 days at the box office.
