After working together for Hindi thriller 'Drishyam', Ajay Devgn and Shriya Saran will be seen paired opposite each other in SS Rajamouli's upcoming Telugu magnum opus 'RRR'. Reports suggest the actress has already joined sets of the film that will also feature Jr NTR and Ram Charan. A source said, “Shriya has joined the sets a few days ago and is currently shooting with the team in the forests of Vikarabad. She is excited to work with Ajay Devgn and is equally thrilled to collaborate with her 'Chatrapathi' director Rajamouli for this historical war drama.”

It is rumoured that NTR and Charan will play brothers in the modern-day portion as Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju. In a press meet last year, Rajamouli had said 'RRR' will be a fictional story set in 1920s pre-independent era and will be based on few years in the lives of two real heroes and well-known revolutionaries.

He had said, “There are gaps in the lives of these legendary freedom fighters that we don't know about. We don't know what happened in their lives in these years. It is through this fictional story we'd like to show what could have happened in their lives and what would have happened if they met and bonded.” The film also stars Alia Bhatt and Samuthirakani in crucial roles. Alia will be paired with Ram Charan, while a foreign actor will be paired with NTR.

'RRR' will release worldwide for Dussehra 2020 in ten Indian languages. Presented by D Parvathy, the film is going to be produced under the DVV Entertainments banner by DVV Danayya.
