Today, the makers and the team of RRR held an exclusive press meet in Hyderabad. Director SS Rajamouli, producer DVV Danayya along with lead actors Ram Charan and Jr NTR interacted with the media this morning.

Rajamouli revealed that Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgan would also be a part of this film. RRR would mark the Telugu cinema debut of both Ajay Devgan and Alia Bhatt.

Film analysts have already begun speculating the reasons behind Rajamouli’s decision to cast Bollywood celebs in the film RRR.

Rajamouli himself revealed today during the press meet that RRR is a Pan Indian film which would be released in Hindi as well as the four major South Indian languages. He also cryptically disclosed that the title will remain the same for all languages but will have a different meaning in all the languages.

Inside sources reveal that Rajamouli has chosen to cast Bollywood celebrity actors like Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgan to give the film a Pan Indian narrative which would even appeal to the North Indian audience. Young Alia Bhatt is currently the most sought after actress in Bollywood while versatile actor Ajay Devgan enjoys an exclusive fan base in Northern India.

Baahubali, on the other hand, was a masterstroke by auteur Rajamouli which managed to appeal to the entire Indian and diaspora audience. However, it seems like Rajamouli is being extra cautious with RRR, is not willing to take any chances and doing his best to ensure the film’s success even in Northern India.
