Produced by DVV Entertainments, Roudram Ranam Rudhiram has music scored by M.M.Keeravani, cinematography by K.K.Senthil Kumar, and editing by Sreekar Prasad.

According to the latest reports, Rajamouli and team are getting ready to resume shooting from the month of August and the recce work is already in progress. As per the report in Cinema Express, director Rajamouli has decided to shoot a few important portions at Nalgonda Fort. Initially, these portions were planned to be shot in Pune, but owing to the high positive Corona cases there, the ace filmmaker has gone for a change of plans. Reportedly, a major schedule is being planned to take place here and we will get better clarity about this in the coming days. It is also added that Rajamouli is planning to shoot the remaining portions of the film in and around Hyderabad since travelling to other states or countries for the next few months is going to be quite risky. However, this news comes as a great surprise for the fans who are excitedly waiting for an update from the makers for quite a long time. 

After completing this mega biggie, Rajamouli will be teaming up with Superstar Mahesh Babu for a new film which is currently in nascent stages. Stay tuned to this space for more updates.
