NTR Jr. dubbed for the forthcoming magnum opus RRR in as many as four languages, including mother-tongue Telugu and also—for the first time—in Hindi, Tamil and Kannada. The S.S. Rajamouli directorial is the superstar’s first multilingual and pan-India release.

The Aravinda Sametha actor, who commands stardom worldwide, made every possible effort to nail the diction, intonation and the voice modulation so that his colloquial slang does not sound unfamiliar in the three languages. It is learnt that the actor has dubbed as anyone with an impeccable grasp on Tamil, Kannada and Hindi would.

Not long ago, NTR Jr. floored the national media with his flawless Hindi at Mumbai’s trailer launch of RRR. The Mumbai media had cheered as he charmed them while recounting his experience of working with Rajamouli and embodying the character of a freedom fighter.

It was Rajamouli who wanted NTR Jr. to dub in the four languages for authenticity and the latter took up the challenge. Apart from this, the superstar himself is a stickler for perfection and has gone to extreme lengths for the character, even putting on weight in a short span of time. RRR marks the fourth collaboration of the filmmaker and NTR Jr. after Student No.1 (2001), Simhadri (2003) and Yamadonga (2007).

In the epic to come, NTR Jr. will be essaying the role of Komaram Bheem, a freedom fighter and the protector of the Gond tribe. He plays a fearless hero, who locks horns with a tiger, and his fans’ excitement is bound to scale up as they learn that he has “spoken” in every language.

The film also stars Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt and has music by M.M. Keerawani. The film releases January 7, 2022, daring to take on the “myth” that films released in the first week of a New Year (in Hindi cinema) do not fare well. Considering that Rajamouli has helmed the Bahubali franchise with its record-breaking collections in Hindi cinema alone (Rs. 500 crore-plus in India alone and only in Hindi), this is not even a gamble!
