Nithya has been reportedly signed for a very important role. Contrary to rumours, she has not replaced international actor Daisy Edgar Jones, who opted out of the project recently.
In RRR, Nithya will be paired with Jr NTR, who plays one of the lead actors alongside Ram Charan.
NTR and Charan are rumoured to be playing brothers in the modern day portion and will be seen as revolutionaries Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju, respectively in the period portion which will be the flashback episode.
“This will be a fictional story on the lives of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. There are gaps in the lives of these legendary freedom fighters that we don’t know about. We don’t know what happened in their lives in these years. It is through this fictional story we’d like to show what could have happened in their lives and what would have happened if they met and bonded,” Rajamouli had said.
The film will also star Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt and Samuthirakani in crucial roles. Alia will be paired with Ram Charan. RRR will release worldwide on July 30, 2020 in ten Indian languages.
Presented by D Parvathy, the film is going to be produced under the DVV Entertainments banner by DVV Danayya. The producer has already made it clear that the film will be made with high standards that will elevate the stature of Telugu cinema even further, after Baahubali.
