RRR can be termed the cinema of the year for the Indian cinema scene. The Telugu language epic drama turned out to be epic not only for the makers monetarily but also for the fans as a visual treat. And now the filmmaker has announced that the sequel is in progress. While the first part turned out to be a global blockbuster, it would definitely be worth the wait to see what the sequel brings to the table.
In an interview recently, S S Rajamouli said that his father Vijayendra Prasad is writing the story of the sequel. This was when someone asked him if RRR 2 can be expected. He further said, “I would absolutely love to. I can’t reveal many details about it but my father, who has been a screenwriter for all my films including RRR…We discussed a bit about it, and he is working on the story.”
Even the lead of the film Jr NTR had felt that it is fair to take the story forward. “I’m pretty sure that if he doesn’t make (a sequel), you’re going to kill him for sure. He needs to make ‘RRR 2’, there needs to be a conclusion to this also! I was speaking to a journalist, and I don’t know how but I said ‘RRR’ franchise. So, hopefully it becomes true. He should make RRR 2,” he had said.
RRR was made on a budget of Rs 550 crore and is one of the most expensive Indian films of all. And when it hit the theatres, it broke box office records by earning approximately Rs 1200 crore. The cast included actors like Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran and Makarand Deshpande, etc. The film was announced in 2018. An iconic sequence was then shot in 2019 at the Ramoji film city with almost 1000 artists. It started off with a budget of Rs 350 crore but with complications and the pandemic, it shot up.
The action scenes that people loved so much were shot over a span of 75 days where there were 40 trained fighters from across the world. 2500 people from London were also in the film who were seen in the segments of the British rule. But then 300 days and 3000 technicians later the shooting of the film wrapped up and the fruit of the hard work was sweet.
