“He’s working on the story”: RRR 2 Might Finally Be Moving Forward as SS Rajamouli Reveals His Father is Working on the Story

RRR was released in March this year with Ram Charan and Jr NTR starring in the film, leaving the audience mindblown, and later becoming a complete box office success. A sequel might also be in the works, as director SS Rajamouli confirmed in an interview.

Earlier this year, SS Rajamouli was asked about the movie’s sequel which he gave a subtle hint. RRR 2 was definitely destined to happen. The director added:

Let it cool down. Of course, for me it would be a great pleasure, not because of what it’ll do at the box office, but because I will have more time to spend with my brothers. That’ll be more exciting for me. But let time unravel what we have.”

The plot of RRR follows the compelling narrative of Indian revolutionaries Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR). Set in the distant past, the 1920s, India was then ruled by the British monarch. The movie also stars Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, and Shriya Saran.

Rajamouli talked about the success and global recognition of the film during an event. He admitted he never expected it would reach worldwide audiences, especially in Western cinema. The astonished director later revealed:

I didn’t even have an inclination for that. When RRR was released (in the West), I started getting the responses, I thought maybe there are a few. Then few became hundreds, and hundreds became thousands, and film people from different fields were talking highly of RRR, I realized something that I never knew about myself or my films. I am still trying to understand to be very honest.”

RRR is available to stream online via Netflix.
