After the humongous success of Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017), cinephiles are waiting for the next film of director S. S. Rajamouli with bated breath. Titled RRR, the much-awaited movie has been in news even before hitting the shooting floor.

Written and directed by S. S. Rajamouli, RRR stars Telugu superstars Jr. NTR and Ram Charan in lead roles. Bollywood stars Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt also play important cameo in the movie. The entire team was busy filming RRR with a lot of enthusiasm, but they had to stop the shoot due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The latest update on the high-profile film is that it may be another one of the many movies being postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Rumours are doing the rounds that the lockdown in India is going to be extended until 31st April. If it does extend, Rajamouli and his team may decide to defer the release of RRR to the summer of 2021.

After delaying RRR several times, S. S. Rajamouli was keen on meeting the 8th January, 2021 deadline, but now it seems almost impossible due to the production halt across all industries in India. Once the lockdown comes to an end and shoots resume, the makers will have to face scheduling issues with Alia Bhatt and several international actors. The news of the film getting pushed again has not been confirmed yet, but Rajamouli is expected to make the announcement soon.
