Currently, he is prepping for his role rigorously to get the looks needed in terms of physique under famous fitness trainer Lloyd Stevens who has worked with Bollywood actors Ranveer Singh and Hrithik Roshan. Jr NTR reunites with Rajamouli after a gap of ten years.
The last film in which NTR Jr and Rajamouli came together was Yamadonga which has become an all-time superhit film in Tollywood. Rajamouli's #RRR film has already begun pre-production work. Rajamouli is looking out for the right kind of plush areas for some of the scenes, it is said.
The combination film with Rajamouli, Jr NTR and Ram Charan is among the costlier high budget films to be made. Analysts put the cost at around Rs 300 Cr. Ongoing reports suggest that Jr NTR and Ram Charan have signed the project without total faith in Rajamouli's script.

While Prabhas is believed to have got paid Rs 25 Cr for Baahubali and is the highest paid actor compared to other leading actors like Anushka, Rana, Nassar and Ramya Krishna. However, let us wait for an official word on this. One thing is for sure; Jr. NTR is on a high and is winging it higher in Tollywood.
