Maverick director SS Rajamouli went ahead with the shooting of RRR a few weeks ago and it is progressing at a rapid pace. The lead stars Jr NTR and Ram Charan are currently on the sets shooting some gravity defying action sequences. And now, the latest buzz from the RRR team is that veteran actor and director Samuthirakani is onboard this magnum opus to play a pivotal role. He is known for not missing the best roles that comes his way and going by what we hear from sources, Samuthirakani will have a meaty role to play in RRR. He is not a new face to the Telugu film industry as he had appeared in a cameo role in Shambo Shiva Shambo earlier. He had also directed Janda Pai Kapiraju in Telugu.
Samuthirakani began his career with the Tamil film Unnai Charanadaindhen in 2003 which won him the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Story Writer. Besides wielding the megaphone, he had starred in critically acclaimed movies such as Subramaniapuram, Sattai, Kadhalum Kadandhu Pogum, Rajini Murugan, Velaiilla Pattadhari 2, etc.
RRR was announced last year amidst a lot of expectations and the lead stars’ looks in the film have been worked out already. The photo shoot of this film happened in the US last year and now the shooting is progressing. The film’s working title is RRR, which stands for the three Rs – Rajamouli, Ram Charan and Rama Rao.
On the technical crew roped in for the project, we hear that MM Keeravani is onboard to compose the tunes. Details about the rest of the star cast and crew are under wraps as of now. The director had made an announcement already that RRR will be a Sankaranthi 2020 release.
