The makers of RRR — director SS Rajamouli along with his starcast Ram Charan and Jr NTR, and producer DVV Dhanayya, in a press conference in Hyderabad confirmed that Alia Bhatt will be romancing Ram Charan in the film. He further said that Ajay Devgn too will play a pivotal role in the film.
An ecstatic Alia Bhatt took to her Twitter and wrote: "Today I feel truly truly grateful.. Cannot wait to begin this beautiful journey with this stellar cast and massive team.. thank you @ssrajamouli sir for giving me this opportunity to be directed by you.. 💃💃💃💃 #RRRPressMeet"
Alia also said that working with the 'Baahubali' director SS Rajamouli is a big tick off her bucket list: " Alia said, “Working with Rajamouli sir is a big big tick off my bucket list.. also to be alongside Ram Charan and Jr. NTR is an absolute honour.. I am very excited about this experience and also working in the south for the first time.. I begin shoot in less than a month.. I will be playing the role of Sita, and the film is set in 1920s backdrop"
Well, looks like this will be interesting, considering Alia is playing the role of 'Isha' opposite Ranbir Kapoor's character 'Shiva' in Ayan Mukerji's 'Brahmastra'.
Addressing the media, SS Rajamouli said, "Alluri Sitarama Raju, who was born in 1924, started guerrilla war against Britishers.

On the other hand, Komaram Bheem faught against Britishers in the similar way Alluri Sitarama Raju. Both of them started their almost during the same time, but they did know each her. If they had knew each other and joined hands with each other, their fight could have been even stronger. This is the story of my movie RRR and it is going to be a fictitious story based on Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju."
The makers also revealed the budget of this multi-starrer film and said: "Approximately, RRR will be made on a budget of Rs 350-400 crore," said DVV Dhanayya.
