Speaking in a recent interview with an international portal, the actor said, “I was put on a hectic training program for about 18 months. I had to achieve the right physical appearance. I was 71 kilos before that for another film, and I had to gain about nine kilos of muscle mass.”
When asked to reveal more about the film, NTR had a tongue-in-cheek response. “I really can’t tell you anything more, if Rajamouli reads this interview, and he’s definitely going to read it, he’s going to run behind me with an axe,” he said, adding that the film will make people go ‘wow’ and push them off their seats.
The shooting for RRR, which also features Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn and Shriya Saran, has been stalled due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Jr NTR himself has tested positive for the novel coronavirus and is currently in home isolation at his residence in Hyderabad.
