A source from the set confirmed the actress joining the shoot and said she will leave after she’s done shooting her part, which is likely to take 2-3 weeks’ time. The film, which marks the Bollywood actor’s Telugu debut, originally was supposed to her shoot in November but was later postponed by a few weeks.

The film is slated to hit cinema halls on January 8, 2021, and will also be released in Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam.
The film’s shoot, which resumed after 8 months in October, is moving at a brisk pace. The makers of the film recently completed a 50-day major action sequence which they shot without a break, during the nights. RRR, which is being made on a lavish budget, will be a fictional story set in the 1920s pre-independent era and will be based on the lives of two real-life heroes and well-known revolutionaries —Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. Alia Bhatt will be playing the role of Alluri Sitarama Raju’s wife Sita in the film.
