Without even seeing one shot of the film, Karan Johar is so deeply impressed by S S Rajamouli’s next , tentatively titled RRR that Bollywood’s most successful producer has decided to up the ante .
While Rajamouli was all set to shoot the film on a set erected at Ramoji Rao Studio in Hyderabad, Karan, who co-produces Rajamouli’s next project, wants the director to shoot on lavish locations all across the world.
Apparently the brief from Karan Johar is simple: go, splurge.
Says a source from Johar’s Dharma Productions, “Basically Rajamouli belongs to the conservative school of filmmaking as far as budgets are concerned. Even after making the most successful Indian film of all times(Baahubali) Rajamouli believes in cutting corners. Karan Johar will have none of that. He wants no expenses spared for RRR. He also wants Rajamouli to spend money on himself, buy a new home , wear designer clothes, etc. But Rajamouli smiles through Karan’s promised indulgences.”
Incidentally RRR is not the film’s final title .
Says a source close to the project, “It’s just something the film’s director Rajamouli and his two lead actors Ramcharan Teja and NTR Jr came up with until further notice.Also the film has nothing to do with reincarnation.”
