Fact Check:

Alia is still part of the film. The claim is FALSE.

On Tuesday, Bollywood Now posted a video with a caption: "If Rumors are to be believed, Alia Bhatt has opted out or may have been thrown out of SS Rajamouli's mega-project 'RRR'. Ram Charan wants Priyanka Chopra to come in. Watch the story".

The post got 10,000 reactions including 700 comments.

Alia Bhatt's team was quick to respond and dismiss the rumors as 'false'.

BollywoodLife wrote an article about the rumor. It quoted that a source told Pinkvilla that "Alia is still very much a part of RRR. She is, in fact, prepping for the role, since she has to learn and understand Telugu. While the COVID outbreak has put a temporary pause on the film's shoot, the team is currently chalking out a different schedule to start rolling with Alia."

As per DNA India sources, such reports are surfacing on the web to tarnish her image.

"It's a carefully planted report to damage her reputation even further. Rajamouli has signed Alia because of her talent and not of her lineage. He will stick to his decision and go ahead with Alia as his lead heroine. It's sad to see what's happening out here."

Hence, the claim is FALSE.
