In the film, it is rumoured that Jr NTR and Ram Charan play brothers in the modern-day portion and will be seen as Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitarama Raju in the period portion which will be the flashback episode. Ray Stevenson, Olivia Morris, and Alison Doody have also recently joined the stellar cast of RRR.
RRR is a fictional story set in the 1920s and it will be based on a few years in the lives of two real heroes and well-known revolutionaries – Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. The filmmaker in a press conference had said that there are gaps in the lives of these legendary freedom fighters that no one knows about. RRR is, therefore, a fictional representation of what could have possibly happened during that period.
