After the lockdown, the shooting of SS Rajamouli’s RRR restarted in October. While the filmmaker was busy shooting with his male leads, Jr. NTR and Ram Charan, now actress Alia Bhatt has joined the team in Hyderabad, India.
On the official Instagram handle of the film, the makers have posted a few pictures of Rajamouli and Alia, and captioned it as, “A very warm welcome to our dearest #Sita, the supremely talented and beautiful @aliaabhatt on to the sets of #RRRMovie! 🌟❤️#AliaBhatt #RRR.”
RRR will mark Alia’s Tollywood debut, and though the film is being made in Telugu, it will be dubbed in various languages including Hindi. Just like SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali franchise, RRR is also a pan-India film, and with Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt’s presence in it, the movie will surely attract the Hindi film audience.
There were reports that Alia has a small role in the film, and while talking about it, the actress had earlier stated, “I don’t care about the length of my role in RRR. Just working with him (SS Rajamouli) is enough. I have taken lessons in Telugu to do this film. I can’t say I speak the beautiful language like a native. But I am trying.”
RRR was slated to release in January 2021, but due to the lockdown, the shoot was postponed, and now, the makers have not yet announced the new release date of the film.
