SS Rajamouli's upcoming directorial venture RRR has reportedly sold its satellite and digital rights for Rs 132 crore, breaking the record of Rajinikanth-starrer 2.0. A leading channel has acquired the satellite and digital rights of Rajamouli's multi-starrer.

Rajamouli's brand of filmmaking has been hailed as one-of-a-kind. The director has shown his prowess at handling astronomical budgets to make even bigger features from them. His work Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion have created history at the box office. Rajamouli has thus transformed from a Telugu filmmaker to one of India's most coveted directors.

Shankar's 2.0, featuring Akshay Kumar and Amy Jackson, apart from Rajinikanth, was also developed on a huge budget. Some even guessed that this film was the most expensive venture that Indian films had ever got into. Expected to be the biggest film of 2018, 2.0 garnered a total of Rs 108 crores for its satellite and digital rights. RRR thus broke the record by almost Rs 25 crore.

RRR will feature Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the lead. It is being produced by DVV Danayya under the banner of DVV Entertainment. RRR is reportedly being made on the huge budget of Rs 300 crore and has MM Keeravani scoring the music for the feature.
