Still trying to "cool off from the heat which the movie generated", says Rajamouli

'RRR' Hindi version, Netflix, Rajamouli
Set in pre-Independence India, the film revolves round the characters of Alluri Seetharamaraju and Komaram Bheem, two freedom fighters and their rebellion against the British.

Telugu star Jr NTR has said there should be a sequel to SS Rajamoulis blockbuster RRR, much on the lines of the filmmakers hit franchise Baahubali.

Rajamouli’s latest period action drama, featuring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, has so far reportedly minted Rs 1,000 crore at the global box office. This is the filmmaker’s third consecutive blockbuster after Baahubali: The Beginning and its sequel, Baahubali: The Conclusion.

During a special event to celebrate the films success on Wednesday, Jr NTR said fans ‘demand for a sequel is fair.

“I’m pretty sure that if he doesn’t make (a sequel), you’re going to kill him. He needs to make RRR 2, there needs to be a conclusion to this also! I was speaking to a journalist and I don’t know how but I said RRR franchise. So, hopefully it becomes true. He should make RRR 2,” the actor told reporters.

Charan said that for now he feels content and is glad that the film could release after a series of delays due to the coronavirus pandemic. “Of course, we all will be delighted again if Rajamouli sir thinks of RRR 2,” he added.

Rajamouli said both his leading stars got out of the RRR headspace pretty quickly, while he is still trying to “cool off from the heat which the movie generated”.

“Let it cool down. Of course, for me it would be a great pleasure, not because of what itll do at the box office, but because I will have more time to spend with my brothers. That’ll be more exciting for me. But let time unravel what we have,” the filmmaker added.

The success press event was organised by Jayantilal Gada of Pen Studios, which acquired the North India theatrical rights and all languages digital and satellite rights for RRR.
It was also attended by Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, filmmaker Karan Johar and veteran lyricist-screenwriter Javed Akhtar.
