The "RRR" frenzy seems to know no end. Just when it felt like the storm began to calm, SS Rajamouli dropped an update that is likely to instigate another wave of hype and excitement. The filmmaker, who is touring with the film in North America, has confirmed that the film will get a sequel.

Speaking at one such screening event in Chicago, the filmmaker said that his father Vijayendra Prasad is currently working on the story. “My father is story writer for all my films. We discussed a bit about ‘RRR 2’ and he's working on the story.”

Considering the nascency of the sequel and SS Rajamouli’s commitments, it is wise to assume that if the sequel eventually materialises, it will take a few years to see fruition and hit screens. "RRR" itself was officially announced in 2017 and hit the screens in 2022 due to the pandemic-imposed restrictions that hindered the filming.

The film, starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, created records in India and found takers in the US and Japan as well.

Rajamouli, meanwhile, is all set to collaborate with Mahesh Babu for his next, which he described as a ‘globe-trotting adventure’.
