Rajamouli's son Karthikeya has been assisting his father in his production and direction departments since Magadheera. He was the Second Unit Director for the Bahubali franchise. During Baahubali 2's audio launch, Rajamouli openly praised Karthikeya and hailed him an all-rounder.
And now, Rajamouli seems to have entrusted Karthikeya with a much bigger responsibility for his multistarrer with NTR and Ram Charan 'RRR'. Karthikeya will now lead RRR's casting team and choose the right actors for the movie.
Karthikeya has left for Kerala today to audition theatre actors from the state that produced some of India's finest actors. However, RRR's team is maintaining that Karthikeya is headed to Kerala only to setup a database of talented actors which will be useful for all Tollywood filmmakers.
