Popular filmmaker SS Rajamouli, who is known for helming blockbusters like Baahubali franchise, Magadheera, Eega and many others, is celebrating his 47th birthday today. While the fans are waiting for his upcoming magnum opus RRR, celebs like Ajay Devgn, Jr NTR, Alia Bhatt, Rana Daggubati and others shared beautiful wishes for the blockbuster director on their social media account.
Talking about Rajamouli’s RRR, the makers resumed the shoot recently after the lockdown. The period drama features Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran and Olivia Morris in key roles. Talking about Ajay Devgn’s character, SS Rajamouli earlier said, the actor exudes honesty and integrity and that’s why he is apt for the part. The period drama is being made on an insane budget of Rs. 350 crore. The magnum opus has already started setting benchmarks as it broke the pre-release business of India’s biggest blockbuster, Baahubali 2 (also directed by SS Rajamouli) by a huge margin. All the rights of the film have been bought at record prices and reports suggest that it has already earned over Rs. 400 crore from South India and overseas markets alone.
The film, which was scheduled to release in July was pushed to January 2021 and now the filmmaker has confirmed that it has been postponed due to the global crisis of coronavirus. In a webinar conducted by Film Companion, SS Rajamouli said that they will reschedule the release of Ram Charan and Jr NTR starrer once the core team meets and review the situation.
