Baahubali director SS Rajamouli may have suffered some setback with regards to the filming of his next big project RRR but he is nonetheless optimistic. For the unversed, RRR has a star-studded cast of Ram Charan, NTR Jr, Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn among others. According to a latest report in Bollywood Hungama, Rajamouli revealed that he was supposed to begin shooting this month but the Coronavirus pandemic has pushed all filming schedules. The director also revealed a thing or two about Alia Bhatt's character. 

Speaking about why he chose Alia for the role, Rajamouli said, "I need an actress who can stand her ground between Tarak (NTR Jr) and Charan (Ramcharan Teja) both of whom are extremely talented actors. She can be innocent, vulnerable yet be extremely resilient. That is the reason I went for her."

He also clarified that the young Bollywood starlet is not cast in a 'love triangle' opposite NTR Jr and Ramcharan. "By the way, this is not a triangle love story. So she is not cast opposite both the heroes." 

The director also mentioned that because of stars like Alia and Ajay Devgn, RRR will have an pan-India appeal. "In a large-scaled film it is very important that there is perfect balance between art and commerce. One cannot be sacrificed for the sake of the other. Yes, it is also very good that their star status helps the pan India appeal,” Rajamouli told the portal. The first motion poster of RRR was released last month.

Because of nepotism..because of kjo.

There are many talented actors in india but no one gets such oppurtunities as her. N they try to potray that she is there because of talent..bulls**t....she is there because of offers being served to her in golden plate...she gets to choose the cream of projects...her mediocre performaces are showered with praises and awards as if she did world a huge favour by acting in movies....

Its bcuz of kjo..he shoves alia down in everyones throat..world knows..nepotism at its peak...

Also those 2 heroes he mentioned are short. So Alia shortie will suit them perfectly

She is a mediocre actress with zero looks and personality. But overhyped by KJO

Alia owes her life to KJO.

The whole wide world knows it’s bcoz of papa KJo

Alia is not putting people down to come up. Mental sisters will spend their life putting people down. Sickos..

He chose aalia bcoz of karan
Papa kjo bought her beti a role

she is karan's flag bearer of nepotism actually, he cant let her go down

first name that popped up in every reader's mind reading this article is same !

nepotism

Kjo pressure as he purchased Hindi movies rights.... So much for nepotism defence
