Last year on May 31, Mahesh Babu announced his upcoming film Sarkaru Vaari Paata on his dad Superstar Krishna's birthday. Directed by Parasuram, the commercial film stars Mahesh Babu and Keerthy Suresh in lead roles. Though the makers have completed one schedule in Dubai and a few days of shoot in Hyderabad, they have announced the film's release date to be Sankranti 2022. Recently, rumours were rife that the first look poster or the teaser of Sarkaru Vaari Paata will release on superstar Krishna's birthday this year as well.
However, Mahesh Babu's team has refuted the rumours with a statement. The statement read, "In view of the current circumstances, for each one of us personally and the society at large, the makers of #SarkaruVaariPaata believe it's not a right time to give out any updates regarding the film. Request you to not spread any unofficial and falseful news regarding this. All official updates will be posted first on our official accounts. Till then - stay safe and take care (sic)." The shooting of Sarkaru Vaari Paata in Hyderabad was put on hold after few crew members tested positive for Covid-19.
