RRR (Rise, Roar, Revolt) is a historical fantasy in which two freedom fighters fight against British rule in India. It is one of India’s most expensive films in history.
The song Naatu Naatu is filmed outside the Presidential Palace in pre-war Kyiv, Ukraine, and features an energetic dance battle between the film’s lead actors Ram Charan and Jr NTR.
The director SS Rajamouli created this dance battle to feature two freedom fighters bringing a British officer to his knees through their dance performance. The dance is shot through 15 days, with 150 dancers and a crew of 200 working 12 hours a day.
RRR has won many hearts across the world – it is running in Japan and currently screening in a Los Angeles cinema where the audience dances with the song Naatu Naatu.
