The second teaser, Ramaraju for Bheem, from SS Rajamouli’s RRR is finally here to introduce Jr NTR as Komaram Bheem.
When the filmmakers had surprised fans on Ram Charan’s birthday in March with a Bheem for Ramaraju teaser, which showed him as Alluri Sitaramaraju, a super-cop, fans were waiting with high expectations for a similar teaser to release on Jr NTR’s birthday in May. However, before they could wait for the day and feel even before heart-broken, the filmmakers clarified that they wouldn’t be releasing a teaser as due to the lockdown, they couldn’t can the scenes they needed. Fans kept trending #RamarajuforBheem, #BheemManiaBegins and #RoarOfRamaraju in anticipation.
Now, with the film’s team resuming shooting after lockdown recently, looks like Rajamouli finally got the scenes he needed. Sharing the teaser on his social media Ram Charan wrote, “Finally, here’s the mighty Bheem! A befitting return gift to you my dear brother @tarak9999! https://youtu.be/BN1MwXUR3PM @ssrajamouli @RRRMovie #RamarajuForBheem #RRRMovie #BheemFirstLook.” (sic) The teaser shows a super-buff Jr NTR as Komaram Bheem, a man who lives amid nature, someone who’s strong enough to break shackles and the ending of the teaser hints at him being a practicing Muslim. Looks like Rajamouli found his own way to show a secular India.
On Wednesday Jr NTR and Ram Charan were even pulling each other’s legs on social media about releasing the teaser on time despite being five months too late. Despite their jokes the teaser that was supposed to release at 11 AM released late. SS Rajamouli’s RRR, which also stars Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Alison Doody, Ray Stevenson, Samuthirakani and more in key roles is a film that’s fashioned after Motorcycle Diaries. It tells a fictional tale of two famous men from history and the story that could have transpired had they ever met.
When it comes to the story of the film, it reads, “A fictitious story based on two legendary freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharamaraju and Komaram Bheem. Set in the 1920s, the movie unveils both of them away from home (in Delhi) before they started fighting for the country. It is a pan-Indian film painted on a large canvas.” The team of RRR even clarified later on that RRR is a tale of friendship and not a patriotic film at all. Further details are awaited.
