SS Rajamouli's follow-up to his Baahubali duology, RRR released on Friday. The film stars Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn. RRR is a fictional story inspired by Telugu freedom fighters Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. The film has explored a blind spot in history for a cinematic spectacle, as there seem to be no records about what happened in the lives of these freedom fighters when they were away from their homes.
