lia Bhatt to play a sizeable role in RRR – Although RRR is primarily a male flick, its makers apparently tweaked the script to augment Alia Bhatt’s role in the film.
Alia Bhatt is probably carrying her adulation for Rajamouli a tad too far by saying that she pleaded with the director to be cast in his underdirectorial, RRR. Thing is, Rajamouli and the other producers of the film were themselves exceedingly keen on roping in Alia, primarily to appeal to North Indian audiences, who are most likely not familiar with the film’s Telugu leading men. Interestingly, we now hear that the film’s team has augmented Alia’s appearance in the film with a few songs and a number of additional scenes.
A source in the know spilled the beans to us. “Alia was initially not assigned a sizeable role in RRR for it is largely a macho male flick. As a result, no major female characters were included in its script, unlike in Baahubali, wherein Ramya Krishnan played a significant part. Alia’s role had to be tweaked before the offer was presented to her.”
