These were a tough past couple of weeks for movie fans as one of India’s greatest director, SS Rajamouli, took to Twitter to announce that he and his family were tested positive for COVID-19. However, there is good news now. Rajamouli and his family are currently COVID 19 negative and are waiting 3 more weeks to develop enough antibodies to donate Plasma. Since Rajamouli has recovered fully from COVID 19 now, all eyes are on his upcoming movie, RRR (Roudhram Ranam Rudhiram).
When Coronavirus initially hit the world, Rajamouli showered some hope by surprising fans with the release of RRR’s first motion poster.
Then a few weeks later, another hit video of Ramcharan’s first look in RRR was released by his co-star, N.T. Rama Rao Junior on the occasion of the former’s birthday.
There is speculation that SS Rajamouli would follow in the steps of Akshay Kumar to complete the shooting of the remaining scenes of RRR.
RRR’s initial release was slated for 2021. However, if the shooting doesn’t resume in a few weeks, we can expect a delay in release.
Besides RRR, Rajamouli also has another upcoming movie with Tollywood’s Superstar, Mahesh Babu.
So delay in the shooting of RRR means there is going to be a delay in the shooting of Rajamouli’s project with Mahesh Babu as well.
Currently, the country is witnessing a growing trend of anti-nepotism against the Bhatt and Karan Johar camps, and it is a known fact that Alia Bhatt has an exciting role to play in Rajamouli’s upcoming film, RRR.
So, it will be interesting to see how the director, who also goes by Jakkanna, will complete the shooting of RRR and market it with Alia Bhatt in the film.
However, Rajamouli’s current primary focus is to complete the upcoming three weeks as he wants to donate Plasma and help the world’s ongoing fight against the COVID 19 pandemic.
