Even Mahesh Babu recently spoke about the film and was quoted saying, “It’s a dream come true for me to work with him. Doing one film with Rajamouli garu is like taking up 25 films at once. It’s going to be physically demanding and I’m really excited about it. It’s going to be a pan-India film. I hope we break many barriers and take our work to audiences across the country.”
Rajamouli is also known for making films like Eega, Vikramarkudu, Magadheera, and Maryada Ramanna. His RRR was earlier slated to release on July 31, 2020 but was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The next date that was announced was January 7, 2022 but was pushed again. It finally released on March 25 to a thunderous response. It starred Ram Charan, Junior NTR, Alia Bhatt, and Ajay Devgn.
