In an interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Prasad was asked about the sequel to ‘RRR’. He replied with, “It’s both a yes and a no. After the release of RRR I shared an idea of the sequel where the story continues with Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (NTR Jr) set in Africa,” after which SS asked him to develop the idea into a full script.
Vijayendra Prasad added that currently Rajamouli is busy with his upcoming film with Mahesh Babu and will only begin thinking of the next after he has finished the ongoing project. “Knowing my son’s temperament he will not pay any attention to the sequel-idea till the movie with Mahesh is finished. After that if he likes my script and if both the heroes like the script and if they have the time…” He said.
Earlier, Prasad had told Maha News that the sequel of ‘RRR’ could be helmed by a Hollywood director.
In November last year, SS Rajamouli had spoken about the possible sequel of ‘RRR’ at a screening in Chicago where he said that he would ‘absolutely love to make it’. “I can’t reveal many details about it but my father, who has been a screenwriter for all my films including RRR…We discussed a bit about it, and he is working on the story,” he said
