Makarand reveals why his scenes in RRR were cut

Makarand recalled that his scenes in the SS Rajamouli directorial were removed because of various reasons. He told that Covid pandemic was also one of the reasons he faced scheduling conflicts. 

The actor said, “It was such a mammoth film that its schedules were affected by many things; such as COVID and rain. So, it became difficult. Initially, I had a terrific time shooting for the film. But then, because the schedule was stretched a lot, it started becoming difficult for me. I lost out on some scenes also because of the dates, otherwise the presence would have been better. But an actor can only do his bit, what gets edited, you can’t really do anything.”

For the unversed, Makarand played the role of Jr NTR's friend in RRR. Makarand also told how the RRR team welcomed him on the set. He praised Ram Charan for his humility as the latter called him a bog fan of the actor since Satya.
