Producers, directors and even heroes need some publicity gimmick to promote their film. It is not a bad thing to do. We have seen the likes of Chiranjeevi roping in stars from other languages to be a part of his flick just that it will be viable in respective languages. For his periodic drama Syeraa Narasimha Reddy, Vijay Sethupathi was roped in from Tamil, Sudeep from Kannada, Amitabh Bachhan from Hindi, etc., As Syeraa released in the languages mentioned above, Chiranjeevi and Co thought that it will be helpful. It indeed is a good move as audiences from the respective languages show some interest based on their stars.
But does Rajamouli require such a publicity gimmick it the question here? Rajamouli is a pan India director post-Baahubali and many top stars have shown interest to work with Rajamouli. He doesn’t need publicity in the name of actors from other languages as his name and content are enough for the publicity. Baahubali which was completely made with regional stars has gained immense craze at the time of release. Why Rajamouli this time, for RRR is going for such publicity is the question needs to be answered.
Ajay Devgan and Alia Bhatt have been roped in for RRR and they haven’t even joined the sets of RRR. Recently the production team announced that 70 percent of the shoot has been completed. With only 30 percent left and the two Bollywood stars have not even joined it is evident that they are part of the film for small roles. Then what is the need to rope in Bollywood top stars for such small roles? Even regional stars could fit in the bill. We have to wait and see the movie to know the answers. The team has already announced that RRR will release in 10 languages worldwide.
