Earlier this month, the makers of Telugu film RRR announced that Alia Bhatt will be seen as the female lead in the film. The movie is being helmed by SS Rajamouli stars Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the lead roles. The fictional period film is based on Alluri Seetharama and Komaram Bheem, who are legendary freedom fighters. Set in the 1900s, Alia will be romancing Ram in the film. Her character is named Sita.
Now, for the shoot of the film, Alia will be heading to Delhi for a month-long schedule in about a week. She will also be shooting at the different parts of North India. Talking about the same, the source stated to Mumbai Mirror, “The team will shoot at real locations in this schedule which also includes confrontation and action sequences.” This is the second schedule of the film as RRR kickstarted last year in Hyderabad.
The source further said, “In the first schedule, a larger-than-life action scene was shot there with Ram Charan. A part of the third schedule will be based in and around the same set.”
Earlier, talking about the film, Rajamouli had said to the tabloid, “I wanted to paint the canvas with a new brush so that the universe I create has valour, energy, and grit.”
The makers are eyeing for an Eid 2020 release for the multilingual action flick. They are planning to release the film in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam languages.
Currently, Alia is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film, Kalank, which is slated to release on April 17, 2019.
