Rajamouli’s RRR likely to be released on OTT?
If rumours are to be believed that is doing the round in the industry, the SS Rajamouli’s upcoming multi-star project, RRR is likely to have a release on OTT
The much-expected Telugu film RRR is expected to hit the theatres on October 13. But talks are rife in Tollywood that the director SS Rajamouli of Baahubali fame is pressurized to release the movie on OTT. The producers are keeping their fingers crossed about the theatrical release.
It appears the fans are not ready to take the risk of going to the big screen to see the flicks. With another wave of the pandemic anticipated, it is unlikely the situation will return to pre-COVID19 normal anytime soon. In this situation, rumours are doing the round that the makers of RRR are weighing all options including the OTT.
The period action drama film is a fictional story spinning around two revolutionaries Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. The original story was written by Rajamouli’s father K V Vijayendra Prasad who also wrote Baahubali franchise. Rajamouli has written a script from the original story and the film is produced by D V V Danayya under the banner DVV Entertainments.
