SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘RRR’ has a brand new release date. While makers of the movie were earlier aiming for a Diwali release, they announced that the film will now release on January 7. Ram Charan shared a poster featuring himself in a police avatar along with Jr NTR, Alia Bhatt, and Ajay Devgn.

The producers announced that post the theatrical release, the film’s Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada versions will be made available on ZEE5, while the Hindi, Portuguese, Korean, Turkish and Spanish versions of ‘RRR' will stream on Netflix.

Starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the lead role, 'RRR is a fictional story about two Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR), who fought against the British Raj and Nizam of Hyderabad respectively. The film also marks the regional debut of Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn.
