    RRR shot on daily budget of Rs. 75 lakhs, filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli reveals what makes him lose his calm

    S.S. Rajamouli’s calm and composed nature as a filmmaker often leaves people in awe. One of the biggest filmmaker of recent times, Rajamouli is returning after the Bahubaali franchise with RRR and during a promotional interview the filmmaker revealed how despite his calm appearance he often feels nervous on set when shooting for a particularly big sequence.

    The filmmaker who has delivered engaging dramas in the past on a massive scale said in an interview with The Quint that he gets ‘really really angry’ when something goes wrong when he has big units on set. During the conversation the filmmaker revealed how each day of shoot for a film like RRR cost upto Rs. 75 lakhs per day and he couldn’t bare things going wrong at such high costs.

    “During the shoot, what tenses me the most is, when we have these big units and something goes wrong. Like, for example, we were shooting the interval sequence for 65 nights. There were about 100 actors flown in from different countries to play their part and each day cost us 75 lakhs. One night of shooting cost 75 lakhs. In those times, if something is not happening on the clock, I get really really tense, I get really really angry, I get really really upset, I blow my top off, during those times,” Rajamouli told the publication where he was also joined by the leading stars of the film Jr. NTR and Ram Charan.

    RRR is set in the 1920’s and tells a fictional tale based on real revolutionaries Alluri Sitarama Raju (played by Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (played by Jr. NTR) who fought against the British Raj. There is gap in the life accounts of these revolutionaries where there is no record to reveal what happened to them, RR fills with gap with a make believe tale which has been set up by Rajamouli on a grand scale.

    The budget of the film is estimated to be approximately Rs. 400 crores, much higher than the filmmaker’s previous outing Bahubaali 2 which turned out to be a blockbuster. With a lot at stake with the film the release of the movie has now been pushed indefinitely from its planned 7 January release owning to the Omicron scare.
