0

For Telugu superstar Ram Charan, walking into an S.S. Rajamouli film, is a learning curve where he becomes a student imbibing the creative energy of his director at every instance.

The actor, who has worked with Rajamouli in the 2009 hit ‘Magadheera’ and the upcoming film ‘RRR’, said, “I always say I am not an actor going into a Rajamouli film, I am a student who is going into a Rajamouli film. I am excited to see what I am going to learn in his movie or from him.”

He adds that he went on sets with the sole intention of upping his game as an actor based on his learnings from the Director, “I have gone with a clean slate and have completely unlearned to completely grasp what he brings to us as actors”.

However, he mentions that one should be able to gauge the scale and vision of Rajamouli, only then the process will be fulfilled.

He said, “Scope of work for the new things that he is going to make you see if you open your antennas and wait, there are so many things that I learnt from him which in return is going to help me ‘for us’ in the future.”

‘RRR’ directed by S.S. Rajamouli, which also stars Jr. NTR and Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt was supposed to get released on January 7 but the uptick in Covid cases across the country led to makers pushing its release to a later date.

What’s onboard for RRR Telugu Promotions?

0

The team of RRR stepped out with a perfect promotional strategy and the team spent ample time on the Hindi promotions. SS Rajamouli, NTR and Ram Charan are quite active with the promotions and soon after Hindi, they promoted the film in the South Indian languages. Rajamouli planned two big events in the Telugu states but the current situations brought enough confusion in the team. The team of RRR is puzzled as getting permissions for the pre-release events is hard. The public gatherings are prohibited considering the recent surge of the Omicron variant in India.

There were speculations that Megastar Chiranjeevi and Nandamuri Balakrishna will attend the grand pre-release event of RRR in Hyderabad but this may not happen. There are also speculations that the team of RRR may go ahead with pre-release press conference if the permissions are not granted. The makers are also picking up one more location in Andhra Pradesh for the promotions. For now, there is no clarity of RRR promotional events in the Telugu states. The makers will make the announcements soon. RRR is heading for January 7th 2022 release.

During the Tamil pre-release event of RRR, SS Rajamouli lauded his lead actors NTR and Ram Charan. He called them the best. “Bearing Tarak’s love is quite difficult. I fight so much with Tarak. I say that Tarak has no time sense. I want him to be present on the sets at 7 AM but he will be present at 6 AM.

Speaking about Ram Charan, Rajamouli calls him a Hero. “I have learned something from Charan. I am a person who thinks deeply about the work and I am completely focused till I complete the task.

He is quite secure about himself” told Rajamouli about Charan.

The thought of freedom is the hero of ‘RRR’, says Rajamouli

0

The thought of ‘freedom’ is the hero of the film ‘RRR’, star director S.S. Rajamouli said on Friday. The star cast of one of the most anticipated movies — Telugu superstars Junior NTR, Ramcharan, and Bollywood actress Alia Bhat were here for the promotion of ‘RRR’ which would also be released in Kannada language.

Answering a question on who is the hero of the film, Rajamouli said: “The thought of freedom is the hero of the film… the thought that we should be independent, and rule ourselves.”

Talking about the role of Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn in RRR, Rajamouli said, his character will create a huge impact. “I think the source of the film starts from that character and you will see that in the film. It will be difficult to take it out of your heart,” he said while interacting with the reporters here.

Rajamouli said: “Traditionally, Ramcharan and Junior NTR belong to superstar families and their fans have the feeling of rivalry. It was a challenge to make a film casting both. However, apart from rivalry, these two are good friends and they have no egos with each other. Their friendship is translated on to the screen.”

Alia Bhat said her dream has come true and she came to the film sets as a “clean slate”. She explained that for one and a half years, she worked on her language to act in this film.

When asked about the “torture” by Rajamouli as a director, Junior NTR said he was “tortured very much”. Alia, however, said she has been through a lovely experience to which Junior NTR said: “She was not there in ‘Halli naatu’ song… she would have experienced it had she been there.”

Ramcharan recalled how Rajamouli took the entire film crew to Europe to rehearse for the song ‘Halli naatu’. After 10 days of rehearsal, the shoot began on the 11th day.

Junior NTR said he has seen Rajamouli for 20 years. “I have never seen him with regards to action sequences like that in the RRR movie.”

SS Rajamouli on ‘RRR’: Actors, audiences have risen above language barriers

Veteran Filmmaker SS Rajamouli says that he doesn’t categorise actors or audience based on their language, for him there is just the Indian audience and actors that fit the part.

The filmmaker was interacting with the media on the sidelines of a special collaboration with multiplex chain PVR cinemas. Rajamouli is known for making Telugu cinema and his forthcoming film ‘RRR’ features main-stream Hindi actors such as Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt.

When asked about casting on the basis of full inclusion, he said: “I stopped looking at actors as south or north, Hindi or Tamil or Kannada, I have stopped looking at stars like that, and ever before that I’ve stopped looking at audiences in that manner – Hindi, Tamil, Bengali or Malayalam like that, I just look at them as Indian audience. That is something I have been doing for a very long time.”

Releasing multi-starrer mega-budget films in theaters post pandemic is turning into an issue with filmmakers as the cost-recovery is difficult, if not nearly impossible.

With ‘RRR’ gunning for theatrical release, SS Rajamouli believes that one can curb the issue by just making a better product.

“It’s not just the problem of my film, it’s not just the problem of film field, it’s the problem of entire humanity, the pandemic. So there is no scope of sitting and crying about what’s going to happen to me or my film. This is the situation; it is what it is, and how do you make the most out of it, how do we overcome the obstacle, and how to make it exciting for the people to visit theaters and watch it again and again. So you have to make your film much better,” he added.

‘RRR’ starring Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt, will release in January 2022, and will lock horns at the box-office with ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ and ‘Radhe Shyam’.

Buzz: RRR Theatrical deals to have a cut?

RRR happens to be the most awaited Indian film and the pre-release business has been terrific. Most of the territories are sold for the highest prices and the film has to perform exceptionally well to recover the investments. For example, Baahubali: The Conclusion collected a theatrical share of Rs 66 crores in Nizam and RRR is bought for a whopping price of Rs 75 crores. After the arrival of the pandemic, things changed drastically and the theatrical equations are completely different. A section of the audience are yet to step out to watch the films in theatres.

With the digital streaming platforms screening films one month after the theatrical release date, some of the movie lovers are showing no interest to visit the theatres. RRR is an exception but the buyers of AP are now negotiating to cut down the theatrical deals. The business ratio is reduced by 30 percent and the talks are going on for now. The second wave of the pandemic is yet to completely calm down and there are predictions of the third wave of coronavirus early next year. For a film like RRR and considering a vast release, all the regional and international markets have to be reopened completely. USA is reopened completely and some of the international markets are yet to screen films on a complete note.

Considering all these, RRR will have a tough road ahead considering the stake and the inked theatrical deals. The makers will make good profits even before the release as the non-theatrical rights of the film fetched huge prices. For now, the negotiations are on.

When the digital market is slowing turning out as a threat for the theatrical market, there is a lot of hope left because of directors like SS Rajamouli.
