In a welcome move, the Telangana Government decided to allow production works and shooting schedules for movies to resume. The decision came as a relief to the filmmakers who have been concerned about the reopening of the industry. Infact, a delegation of Tollywood big wigs led by Chiranjeevi, met the Chief Minister of Telangana, K. Chandrasekhar Rao to discuss the reopening of the movie industry. The delegation consisted of eminent actors, producers and directors among whom S.S. Rajamouli was one.
Rajamouli was one of the first directors to resume shooting works for his movie Roudram Ranam Rudhiram (RRR.) His plan was to do a trial shoot for two days with the lead actors Ram Charan and Jr. NTR, while following the safety guidelines laid down by the government. The plan was to check if shooting the movie was feasible with the new safety guidelines.
However, according to the latest reports Rajamouli is forced to cancel the two day shoot for RRR because of the sudden spike in the COVID-19 cases in Telangana State. Therefore Rajamouli decided to keep the health and safety of his team in mind and decided to cancel this trial shoot for RRR.
RRR has a star studded cast with actors from Bollywood and the U.K., as well. Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Olivia Morris, Allison Doody and Ray Stevenson will be appearing in supporting roles for RRR. M.M. Keeravani is composing the music while DVV Entertainments is producing the movie. Ram Charan and Jr. NTR are the stars of the movie with Jr. NTR playing the role of Komaram Bheem and Ram Charan playing the role of Alluri Sitarama Raju.
