RRR Is A Mix Of History & Fantasy, film’s storywriter K . Vijayendra Prasad Speaks 5

In  S  S  Rajamouli’s  RRR  historical fact has been fused with fantasy-fiction .

 Revealing this, the  film’s  storywriter  K . Vijayendra Prasad says, “It is  a fact that   the two heroes freedom fighters  Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem who fought against the British Raj and Nizam of Hyderabad respectively, existed in  history. But  as  far as we  know they never met, never  fought together againt  the Britishers.”

 From this point Vijayendra’s  imagination  took  off. “What  if  the  two  heroes    actually met and  fought together against the  common enemy? That’s where  my  imagination comes in.”

Vijayendra   will of course  put  a disclaimer  about the  liberties taken  by the plot. “But I know  I will still be  judged harshly.”
 In the  meanwhile  Vijayendra-scripted bio-pic of Jayalalita , Thaliavi has  also shaped  up well.

Informs  Vijayendra, “About thirty percent  of the shooting remains. But I saw the rushes of what’s been shot. It’s shaped  up  beautifully.  Kangana Ranaut is fabulous as Jayalalitha.”
