The upcoming drama SRI, produced by Chalk N Cheese Films and T-Series, is scheduled to come out on September 15 of this year. The film, which is a biopic about the visually impaired industrialist Srikanth Bolla and stars Rajkummar Rao, Alaya F, Jyotika, and Sharad Kelkar, is set in the 1980s. After a long absence, the film marks south actress Jyotika's return to Bollywood. An official statement from the producers provided additional information regarding the project under Tushar Hiranandani's direction, stating that "SRI is a biopic of an industrialist Srikanth Bolla, who didn't let his visual impairment come in the way of his vision and founded Bollant Industries."

The head of T-Series, Bhushan Kumar, had previously stated, "Srikanth Bolla's story testifies the very proverb of acing against the odds." He was expressing his excitement about supporting SRI. His journey is truly inspirational, despite the many obstacles he has faced since birth and his refusal to let anything stop him from pursuing his goals. Being associated with someone like him is in fact a privilege. We are pleased to have such a fine actor on board because this character's personality is such that only Rajkummar Rao can justify it. It's very odd how Tushar Hiranandani plans to present this captivating tale. As we are excited to make this film, we are similarly energized for the crowds to observe this convincing story of Srikanth!"

In Vasan Bala's Monica, O My Darling, which also starred Huma Qureshi, Radhika Apte, and Sikandar Kher, Rajkummar was last seen. The following film, Bhediya, starring Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, featured him as a cameo. In the horror comedy, he played Vicky from Stree again.
