02/6Meaning of the title
SS Rajamouli piqued the curiosity of his fans after he announced the title of his upcoming period film ‘RRR’. He later revealed that the title is an abbreviation of ‘Raama Roudra Rushitam in Telugu which is roughly translated in English as ‘Rise Revolt Revenge’. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?
Talking about ‘RRR’, Rajamouli had earlier told a news portal that he wants to paint the entire canvas with a new brush altogether so that the universe he creates contains valour, energy and grit.
‘RRR’ is reportedly said to be a period action drama and the actors will be seen playing characters that were rarely done in the past. The story is based on the life of two Telugu personalities Alluri Sitaramaraju and Komaram Bheem.
While Ram Charan will essay the role of Sitaramaraju, Jr NTR will portray Komaram Bheem. Alluri and Komaram fought against the British Raj and Nizam of Hyderabad respectively.
Set in the 1920s, ‘RRR’ is inspired by two legendary freedom fighters- Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. While Raju had led the Rampa Rebellion of 1922–24, Bheem fought for the liberation of Hyderabad during the rule of Asaf Jahi Dynasty.
Although the movie’s plot is a fictional account of these revolutionaries, it would be quite intriguing to imagine how these characters will be portrayed on by the ace filmmaker.
Apart from a stellar star cast of Ram Charan and Jr NTR, ‘RRR’ will mark the Telugu debut of Bollywood beauty Alia Bhatt and ace actor Ajay Devgn. Alia will be seen playing the character named Sita in the movie. Her first look from the film was unveiled today on the occasion of her birthday.
