While Roudram Ranam Rudhiram is the Telugu title, it’s Raththam Ranam Rowthiram in Tamil, Rise Roar Revolt in Hindi and English, Rudhiram Ranam Roudram in Malayalam and Roudra Rana Rudhira in Kannada.
After much speculation, the female lead and the antagonists of the film were revealed by the makers in November 2019. Olivia Morris, a British theatre artist will be seen opposite Junior NTR while Irish actors Ray Stevenson and Alison Doody essay the antagonists in the magnum opus. Earlier, Daisy Edgar Jones who was part of the film had walked out of the project due to unavoidable ‘family circumstances’.
Alison Doody who has been a part of films like A View to a Kill, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Major League II, King Solomon’s Mines essays the role of Lady Scott while Ray Stevenson who has worked in King Arthur, The Other Guys, Kill the Irishman, Thor will be playing Scott in the film. Jennifer, Olivia Morris’ character will romance Junior NTR who plays Komaram Bheem.
Ram Charan essays the role of Alluri Sitarama Raju (an independence revolutionary) and will be seen opposite Alia Bhatt who plays Sita. Samuthirakani also has a significant role in the film. KK Senthil Kumar is cranking the camera, MM Keeravani is composing music, Sreekar Prasad will edit and Sabu Cyril is helming art.
