Mumbai: After creating history by streaming the Friends: The Reunion episode, Zee5 has now acquired the streaming rights of director SS Rajamouli’s RRR. The movie will be streamed on Netflix too along with Zee5.
The makers of Ram Charan and Jr NTR starrer RRR announced that after the theatrical release of RRR, the film’s Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada versions will also be available on ZEE5. The movie will then be streamed on Netflix too in Hindi, Portuguese, Korean, Turkish and Spanish.

RRR is one of the most awaited movies of the year. Earlier in April, the makers of the movie released a poster on the occasion of Ugadi featuring Ram Charan and Jr NTR. Both the superstars are shown being lifted by the huge crowd in the poster. The movie is based on the lives of Telugu freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. These two roles are played by Ram Charan and Jr NTR respectively. Produced by DVV Danayya, RRR also features Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Samuthirakani, Olivia Morris, Ray Stevenson and Alison Doody.
The movie was initially supposed to hit screens in January this year. However, the release was then postponed because of the pandemic. RRR is now scheduled to hit screens in multiple languages on October 13 this year.
