Reports were that actress Alia Bhatt has resumed shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi‘. Notedly, the actress was also gearing up for S. S. Rajamouli’s mega opus RRR co-starring South superstars N. T. Rama Rao Jr and Ram Charan. As per the latest reports, Alia will now dash off to Hyderabad for Rajamouli’s RRR.
According to a Mid-day report, Alia has to shoot some crucial scenes in RRR with her co-stars. Set in the early 20th century, the film narrates the story of Alluri Sitarama Raju (played by Charan) and Komaram Bheem (played by Rao) who rebel against the British Raj and the Nizam of Hyderabad. The Dear Zindagi actress will play Raju aka Charan’s love interest in the film.
A source revealed to Mid-day, “Alia had only one scene remaining when the pandemic forced the makers to call time on the project in March. Come the first week of November, she will shoot a major confrontation scene with N. T. Rama Rao Jr and Ram Charan.”
The sequence sees the character of Bheem (who had coined the slogan ‘Jal, Jangal, Zameen’, thus asserting that people who live in the forest should have a right to its natural resources) having an ideological conflict with Sitarama Raju and Alia’s character. The scene was to be shot at a bungalow in Pune, but the plan has been changed post the pandemic,” added the source.
