Principal Photography of 'RRR' commenced in November 2018
The team revealed that the post-production work of the film is moving at a "brisk pace." The principal photography of RRR commenced in November 2018. After the coronavirus pandemic hit India in March 2020, the shooting came to a halt. It was later resumed in October. The shoot was again put on hold in May 2021 due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
'RRR' is scheduled for theatrical release on October 13
The shoot restarted on June 21 after the Telangana government lifted the lockdown. The team of RRR headed to Ukraine early this month to shoot the last schedule of the much-talked-about period action movie. The film also featuring Bollywood stars Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt in pivotal roles is produced by DVV Entertainments. RRR is scheduled for a theatrical release on October 13.
