“Working with Rajamouli sir is a big big tick off my bucket list.. also to be alongside Ram Charan and Jr. NTR is an absolute honour.. I am very excited about this experience and also working in the south for the first time,” Alia reportedly said.
Set in the 1920s pre-independent India, the entirely fictional story is based on two legendary freedom fighters, Alluri Seetha Ramaraju (played by Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (NTR), both legendary Telugu freedom fighters from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh respectively.
“I begin shoot in less than a month.. I will be playing the role of Sita, and the film is set in 1920s backdrop,” Alia added.
Produced by DVV Entertainment, the film is said to be out in July 2020.
