Trailblazing Telugu-language action-musical RRR is set to get a sequel, according to director S.S. Rajamouli.

The first film has been little short of a phenomenon this year, breaking box office records, and making it onto our list of the best movies of 2022.

A fictitious story about two real life figures, the film imagines what would have happened if revolutionaries Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem had met and collaborated before fighting for their country. It features dancing and singing and some of the greatest action ever committed to celluloid. Seriously – RRR really has to be seen to be believed.
