30 percent profit share from the film will be reserved for SS Rajamouli, the man behind the camera, and the director of the film.

It was revealed by Rajamouli and his father, K. V. Vijayendra Prasad, who wrote RRR‘s story, that the story was written imagining a scenario in which Raju and Bheem met during their formative years away from their respective villages. What if they’d met during the revolt?

Rajamouli also said,

“‘RRR’ displays Ram Charan and Jr NTR recreating the fairly young versions of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem — the groundbreaking freedom warriors from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana” 

Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Alison Doody, Olivia Morris, Shriya Saran, Ray Stevenson, and Samuthirakani in supporting roles.
