SS Rajamouli's 'RRR' shoot 'moving at rapid pace', makers share new poster featuring Jr NTR and Ram Charan

Filmmaker SS Rajamouli's period action movie 'Rise Roar Revolt' (RRR) is nearing completion, the makers announced on Tuesday.

In a post on the official Twitter page of the film, the makers revealed that they are short of shooting two songs to wrap the production.

"Moving at a rapid pace. Except for two songs, we are done with the shoot. #RRRMovie @tarak9999 and @alwaysramcharan have completed the dubbing for two languages and will wind up the rest soon," the tweet read.

The makers also unveiled a new still with the tweet. In the picture, Jr NTR and Ram Charan can be seen going on a motorbike.

The film is a fictional tale based on the lives of two freedom fighters in the early 20th century - Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and Kumaram Bheem (NT Rama Rao Jr).

The much-anticipated movie, which commenced principal photography in November 2018, resumed filming in October last year, nearly seven months after the shoot was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The shoot of RRR was again put on hold after the Telangana government imposed a lockdown from May 12 during the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic. The team started filming on June 21 after the government lifted the shutdown in the state.

Produced by DVV Entertainments, 'RRR' also features Bollywood actors Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt in pivotal roles.

Earlier this year, the makers announced that the film will be released theatrically on October 13 in Tamil, Hindi, Kannada and Malayalam.
