Produced by DVV Entertainments, the film is a fictional tale based on the lives of two freedom fighters in early 20th century - Alluri Sitarama Raju and Kumram Bheem.
In the film, Charan will play Ramaraju, while NTR Jr will be seen in the role of Bheem.
"RRR' also features Bollywood actors Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt in pivotal roles.
Earlier this year, the makers announced that the film would release theatrically on October 13.
Given the pandemic, it is unclear if "RRR" will still come out on its original date.
