A poster was also released where the five singers are seen posing with Keeravaani. It features a handshake and song's title in five languages, which indicates that the track will be about friendship and brotherly bond. According to the poster, the singers are Hemachandra, Anirudh Ravichander, Amit Trivedi, Vijay Yesudas and Yazin Nizar. It will be focused on Ram Charan and Jr. NTR's characters.
A few days ago, a video featuring the song in the background went viral. It showed some shots from the sets, including the handshake that appears in the recent music poster. And listening to it makes you confident that RRR is set to rule the music world too. Earlier, the makers announced that Bhushan Kumar's T-Series has acquired the music rights for the film.
According to reports, T-Series and Lahari Music have bought the audio rights for Rs. 25-26 crore. It is supposedly the "biggest deal ever made for a South Indian film." The rights include all five languages — Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi.
Reportedly, a song with a budget of Rs. 3cr will star Alia Bhatt as Sita. It is said to be "the most expensive song-and-dance" ever made. "Bigger than anything we saw in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas or Rajmouli's Baahubali. It will be shot in acres of sprawling land. The costumes themselves will cost close to a crore (Rs. 1cr)," a source told Bollywood Hungama.
While the lead actors are Jr. NTR and Charan, Rajamouli has roped in actors from almost all the film industries. As mentioned before, the epic saga will also star Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in pivotal roles, along with Shriya Saran and Samuthirakani. British actor Olivia Morris, Irish actors Ray Stevenson and Alison Doody were also spotted in the making video, titled Roar of RRR.
Set in the early 20th century, it's based on the struggle for independence against the British. Charan as Alluri Sitarama Raju and Jr. NTR as Komaram Bheem will portray tribal leaders. The period-drama is scheduled for October 13 release. It will also have a digital release on ZEE5 in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada and on Netflix in Hindi, Portuguese, Korean, Turkish, and Spanish.
