To celebrate the film’s amazing feat, the team of RRR threw a huge bash in Mumbai. The mega event was attended by SS Rajamouli, Ram Charan, Jr. NTR, filmmaker Karan Johar, actor Aamir Khan and veteran bollywood lyricist Javed Akhtar. However, Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt, who also played important roles in the film, were not present at the success bash of RRR.
During the media interaction, questions were asked about a sequel, 'RRR 2', wondering if the makers are contemplating a sequel. Jr NTR, who certainly wants the sequel said “Rajamouli sir needs to make RRR 2 as there needs to be a conclusion to this story." Ram Charan also seconded his view by saying "If Rajamouli sir thinks of making RRR 2. I hope your wish comes true brother."
Made on a budget of Rs 350 crore, RRR is a fictitious story based on two legendary freedom fighters, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem who fought against the colonial regime. Set in 1920, the plot explores the undocumented period in their lives when both the revolutionaries chose to go into oblivion before they began the fight for their country.
