Know the latest about Jr NTR and SS Rajamouli

RRR director S S Rajamouli ,and his two leading men Ram Charan and N T R Jr have a lot to celebrate about. RRR is a whopping hit in Both Hindi and Telugu. Sadly it seems one of the triumphant trio is not in a celebratory mood.

Apparently N T R Jr who plays the very interesting role of Komaram Bheem, is not happy with the way his role has shaped up vis-à-vis his costar Ram Charan who , many feel, has ended up with the author-backed role.

A source very close the RRR team in Hyderabad informs that NTR Jr is unhappy with the final shape of his film. “NTR had not seen the complete film before its release.When he sat with Rajamouli and Ram Charan to see the film he wasn’t happy with what he saw.”

Sources say NTR Jr left the theatre after watching the film and went straight home.

While there is no clarity on how much of NTR Jr’s role has been sacrificed on the editing table it is said to be a substantial amount, some of it featuring important dramatic scenes with NTR Jr.

“The way the plot moves on screen the show is an out-and-out Ram Charan vehicle. Towards the climax Ram Charan takes the avatar of Lord Rama while NTR is almost like Hanuman in the plot. We don’t know how upset NTR is with Rajamouli. But they’ve been buddies for ages. They’ve done four film together before RRR. NTR Jr is within his rights to feel let down,” says the source .
