The video promises a comeback with a crew that appeared prepared with the necessary precautions- masks, sanitisation of sets, and checking temperatures of the crew members. However, the use of PPE kits was absent.
RRR is based on the lives of two Telugu freedom fighters- Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, who fought against the British Raj and the Nizam of Hyderabad, respectively.

According to an India Today report, the shoot will resume with Jr. NTR’s first look teaser. Actors and crew members were reportedly put up at hotels at Madhapur and Banjara Hills under quarantine norms.
The motion poster was released on March 25, showing the joining of hands of fire and water and its culmination into a revolution. While the character of Ram Charan depicts fire, Jr. NTR stands for water. Besides Telugu, the film will release in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.
