When one does a Rajamouli film, one becomes so completely involved that for at least a couple of years, they may not do any other film. So, producers wanting to cast NTR and Cherry had almost given up on the two stars for at least coming two years.
Director SS Rajamouli to complete Ram Chanran and NTR’s RRR by Jan 2020
But, RRR is going to be different. Director Rajamouli is reported to have told both NTR and Cherry that they can sign any film they want from January 2020. They were asked to keep one month as a lean period and then accept any other film of their choice. This means the film will be reapped up in a matter of ten months. The shooting is currently going on at a brisk pace. The schedules involve over a thousand artistes every day at the RFC. The film is being shot at various locations like Pune and Kerala.
As of now, Alia Bhat has been chosen and she would play foil to Cherry, while a search is on for the foil for NTR. Rajamouli is looking for a foreign girl for the role.
