SS Rajamouli’s RRR is one of the most awaited films across the industries. The film’s recently released Dosti song has also created a great buzz for the film. Rajamouli has decided to wrap up the shoot at express pace and the movie unit is presently in Ukraine finishing up balance portions. The RRR release date however has created major problems for the unit.
With the shooting picking up great speed, the question of release date has once again come up. Currently, movie industries across India are picking up pace with theatres reopening and shoots going on well. This is good news for RRR which is a pan-India film and needs theatres to completely function in order to go for a release.
However, with the chances of a third wave of the pandemic looking high, the movie unit is in dilemma whether to announce the stipulated release date of 13th October or to wait out till the period gets over.
With RRR being a pan India film, it is crucial that theatres across India are functioning with complete occupancy in order for it to perform as per expectations.
Meanwhile, other Tollywood releases Acharya and Akhanda are also aiming for an October release. Both these films are aiming at only the Telugu market hence AP and Telangana theatres would suffice for their release. The makers of both these films are keeping an eye on October in case RRR release postpones.
All these movies are playing a wait and watch game before making any announcement and it needs to be seen who blinks first.
