MUMBAI: After Baahubali, SS Rajamouli will be returning with RRR: Rise Revolt Roar, a period drama. The film's shooting came to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic, and now, the makers are planning to resume shoot as restrictions begin to ease. For the unversed, RRR features Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, and Ajay Devgn among others.
According to a latest report in Mumbai Mirror, Ajay is set to play a nationalist and a guru to Jr NTR and Ram Charan who will be essaying the roles of Indian freedom fighters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju. A source revealed, "Ajay has shot for around 10 days at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, where Delhi from the 1900s was recreated. He appears in the flashback scenes."
While the actor's role is not a full-fledged one, he was excited about it and said yes soon after the narration. The source also revealed that there were a few actors in the running for the role, but the 'Tanhaji' actor turned out to be the unanimous choice. "Though it is an extended cameo, his track will remind one of his National Award-winning performance in The Legend of Bhagat Singh and sets the tone for the drama involving the two leads," the source added.
