Actor Ajay Devgn, who recently joined the sets of SS Rajamouli’s upcoming magnum opus RRR, has decided to work free of cost in the film, as per reports. According to a Filmfare report, Devgn has decided to work in the movie free of cost as he shares great friendship with Rajamouli and has been previously associated with the latter’s film Eega. He had done voice-over for the Hindi dubbed version of Eega.
