Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed that RRR 2 is also in action. Announcing the same, SS Rajamouli said, “My father is a story writer for all my films. We discussed a bit about RRR 2 and he’s working on the story.”

RRR is a fictitious story about two Indian rebels, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, who are portrayed by Ram Charan and Jr. NTR, respectively. The movie takes place in 1920s India, a time of British control. Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt both have significant parts in the movie. The movie made close to Rs 1200 crore at the box office globally.

On a later occasion, Rajamouli discussed RRR's success worldwide and stated, "Never ever [had] I anticipated RRR to perform well with the Western viewers. I wasn't even inclined toward it. I anticipated there could be a few when I started receiving the comments after RRR was launched (in the West). Few became hundreds, hundreds became thousands, and as cinema professionals from other sectors praised RRR, I came to a realisation about myself and my works that I had never known before. To be really honest, I am still learning.
