The first look of Ram Charan from SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Roudram Ranam Rudhiram (RRR) has been released. In the film, Charan will be seen playing the role of Alluri Sitarama Raju.
The makers shared the new poster on social media with the caption, “Here’s @AlwaysRamCharan as fiercest #AlluriSitaRamaraju 🔥 Brave, honest and righteous, his ferocity will leave you in awe! #RRRMovie.” The poster sees Ram Charan’s character in all his glory. Donning a saffron dhoti-pyjama and a bow-and-arrow, Ram Charan is seen aiming for the sky as his background burns in a sea of war.
Ram Charan also took to Twitter to share his new look from the highly-anticipated movie and wrote, “Bravery, honour and integrity. A man who defined it all! It’s my privilege to take on the role of #AlluriSitaRamaraju.” The first look has been released a day ahead of the actor’s birthday.
Set in 1920s India, the screenplay of RRR has been penned by director SS Rajamouli along with his father KV Vijayendra Prasad. The plotline of the movie imagines the two famed ‘heroes’ — Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem — meeting at some point in time. RRR is said to be entirely a work of fiction as there is no written record about what had happened to these two tribal leaders in the time they had spent away from their homes.
In an earlier statement, Rajamouli had shared his experience of working on the project with the cast and stated, “I’ve worked with Tarak and Charan before and we delivered some of the biggest blockbusters. The catch here was that they belonged to traditionally rival film families. The advantage I had was that they are close friends in real life. When I put the idea across, it didn’t even take them a minute to say yes.”
RRR is special on various levels – other than casting the two superstars together, this film also stars Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn. Alia has been roped in to play the role of Sita, Ram Charan’s love interest while Jr NTR’s Komaram Bheem will fall in love with Olivia Morris’ Jennifer. Ajay Devgn will reportedly play onscreen mentor to Ram Charan and Jr NTR’s characters. Earlier, Alia’s first look from the film was also released on her birthday.
After months of lockdown, Rajamouli resumed the shooting schedule of RRR in November. The film was initially supposed to hit screens in January this year but was postponed because of the pandemic. RRR is all set to hit screens on October 13, 2021.
