Megastar Chiranjeevi and Koratala Siva’s Acharya have been in the making for close to two years now. The Covid pandemic has shown adverse effects on Acharya as the Chiranjeevi starrer kept postponing its release date, owing to the delay in the completion of the shoot.
If the latest updates are to go by, the makers of Acharya are eyeing the next Sankranthi or summer release for the film.
As things stand, the makers are planning to lock the 2022 Sankranthi release date for the film. January 8th is the date that is in consideration for the Chiranjeevi starrer. But this release plan is highly volatile. In case RRR, which looks poised to release next Sankranthi locks January first week release, then Acharya will have to differ its release plans.
If RRR locks Sankranthi's release, Acharya will be pushed to 2022 summer. The makers will then plan an optimal release date for the film during the summer season. If that is the case it would mean that Acharya, which was announced for theatrical release on the 5th of May this year will be released around a year later - 2022 summer.
Barring a couple of songs, Acharya’s hoot has been wrapped up. The makers are planning to wrap up the pending shoot by the end of September. The new release date is expected to be announced once the shoot is wrapped.
The Koratala Siva directorial has Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan, Kajal, and Pooja Hegde in the lead roles.
