In a surprise, Pan-India filmmaker SS Rajamouli has announced that a sequel of his global blockbuster RRR, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, is currently in development.
RRR sequel is in the works
The filmmaker revealed that his father Vijayendra Prasad is writing the sequel, reported Iindianexpress. During a screening in Chicago, when asked if there would be an RRR 2, Rajamouli said, “I would absolutely love to. I can’t reveal many details about it but my father, who has been a screenwriter for all my films including RRR…We discussed a bit about it, and he is working on the story,” he said.

Post RRR, however, Rajamouli is said to direct actor Mahesh Babu for a mega globe-trotting action adventure.
Jr NTR is also keen
Earlier this year, during a special event, to celebrate the film’s success, Jr NTR had said fans’ demand for a sequel to RRR is fine and asked Rajamouli to take the story ahead.
“I’m pretty sure that if he doesn’t make (a sequel), you’re going to kill him for sure. He needs to make ‘RRR 2’, there needs to be a conclusion to this also! I was speaking to a journalist, and I don’t know how but I said ‘RRR’ franchise. So, hopefully, it becomes true. He should make RRR 2,” the actor had said.
Pan-India film RRR is a fictional tale of two Indian freedom fighters from the early 20th century – Alluri Sitarama (Charan) and Komaram Bheem, played by Jr NTR. The film became Rajamouli’s third consecutive pan-India blockbuster after the two-part Baahubali franchise.
