Rajamouli had said, "This will be a fictional story on the lives of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. There are gasps 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 movie also stars Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, and Samuthirakani in crucial roles. Alia will be paired with Ram Charan, while hunt for a foreign female actor is on to be paired with Jr NTR. 'RRR' will release worldwide on July 30, 2020 in 10 Indian languages.
