Megastar Chiranjeevi calls off the shoot of Acharya amidst the outbreak of coronavirus

The Government of Telangana has declared the shut down of schools, colleges, theatres and shopping malls across the state until March 31st, to avoid the outbreak of coronavirus. This decision has made many films push their releases. Now, many other films are postponing their shoots as well. Megastar Chiranjeevi has called off the shooting of his upcoming film Acharya in the wake of the government's decision. The shoot of Acharya will not get done until the 31st of this month.

 
According to the sources, Chiru has asked director Koratala Siva to postpone the shoot and the latter has agreed to it immediately. The Actor has taken the decision to make sure that his film's crew stays safe amidst the spread of coronavirus. We also hear that this might affect the film's release date but nothing has confirmed yet. The makers are currently planning to release Acharya in August this year.
 
Trisha was actually supposed to play the female lead role in the film. But the Stalin actress has left the film citing the creative differences between the makers. Right now, the team is hunting for the replacement for her. Meanwhile, there will be an important role in the movie and mostly, Ram Charan will essay that character.
 
Mani Sharma is composing the music of Acharya. He is collaborating with Chiranjeevi after a gap of 14 years. The last film in their combination was the 2006 release, Stalin. Acharya is being produced jointly by Ram Charan and Niranjan Reddy under their respective banners Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainments.
