SS Rajamouli on the RRR—Part 2
On the 80th Golden Globes red carpet, SS Rajamouli discussed the RRR sequel and revealed that the script is currently being written. Rajamouli revealed, “When the film released and got a great reception, we toyed with the idea of a sequel. We had a few good ideas, but not a compelling one. However, until the script is finished, we can’t move forward, but we are in the process. Then, after it started receiving positive feedback in the West, a few weeks ago, when we were discussing it again with my father and my cousin (who are on the writing team), a fantastic idea came up, and we immediately started writing.
Interestingly, writer KV Vijayendra Prasad has officially confirmed that the story of RRR 2 is finally locked. The veteran scenarist revealed that the film’s team has finally “cracked the sequel’s premise.”
