Is this why Alia Bhatt turned down SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan?
After making critically and commercially successful films like ‘Makkhi‘ and ‘Baahubali‘ series, SS Rajamouli is one of the most sought after director in the industry now. Rajamouli has started working on his next film, that stars two South superstars Jr NTR and Ram Charan. Now that itself is a casting coup of the sort as these two hunks have never worked together before.
Keeping the grand scale of the film in his mind, Rajamouli was looking out to cast a renowned Bollywood actress in his film because he wants to cater to the Hindi-speaking audience. In fact, there were rumours doing the round that Alia Bhatt has been approached for the film. But the recent reports suggest that Alia won’t be a part of this magnum opus.
Here’s an on the set picture of the director with his lead actors
Apparently, Alia turned down the offer as she wasn’t able to figure out dates for ‘RRR’. Currently, Alia is having a jam-packed schedule as she has not one but three big-budget movies in her kitty. Yes, Alia is gearing up for the release of ‘Kalank’, followed by ‘Brahmastra’ and ‘Takht’. Reportedly the director was even willing to give her a fat paycheck but things didn’t turn out as per his wish.
Looks like we have to wait a little more to see Rajamouli and Alia collaborate for a film. Coming back to ‘RRR’, the film will see a cameo appearance from Ajay Devgn.
