A few days ago, it was reported that SS Rajamouli's upcoming period drama, Roudram Ranam Rudhiram (RRR), has sold its digital rights for a whopping Rs 325 crore to ZEE5. With this exorbitant deal, RRR has become the first movie to fetch such a huge amount of money ahead of its release. But it seems like the makers of RRR may not be able to deliver on schedule time in October because of its lead actors Jr NTR, Ram Charan and Alia Bhatt.
An actor, who is a part of RRR, recently said that SS Rajamouli's magnum opus may get postponed indefinitely. Citing the surge in COVID-19 cases for the delay, the actor said that the film's lead actors Jr NTR, Ram Charan and Alia Bhatt contracting the virus is also a major concern on the sets adding that it is not a happy place for the film's cast and crew.
"There is still a lot of shooting remaining. Even if the Covid crisis improves by October there is no way Raja Sir can complete and release the film on time (in October)," the actor told Spotboye further speculating that the movie's release date might get pushed to January 2022 or in the more months to come. It remains to be seen how the makers plan the release of their mega budget film henceforth.
It is being said that the overall pre-release business of RRR, including theatrical, digital, music, and satellite rights, would somewhere range between Rs 800-850 crore. This would earn the producers of RRR a profit of around Rs 400 crore.
Jr NTR recently revealed the look of his character Komaram Bheem in RRR. In the picture, Jr NTR as Komaram Bheem leaps above a stormy sea, spear in hand and ready to charge. Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn will also be seen in this magnum opus by SS Rajamouli. The film is set against the backdrop of the independence era. The period drama centres around the life of freedom fighters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sita Ramaraju. It will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada and other Indian languages.
