The shoot of RRR, a big-budget periodic action thriller starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan has been halted due to the onset of Covid second wave. The unit is waiting for the effect of Covid to subside before they get back to work and complete the remaining shoot. It is said that unit will have to shoot for another 40 days in order to be done with the filming part.
It is all but confirmed that RRR will not be making it to theatres this October, as announced by the makers a few weeks ago. The film will certainly be postponed to a later date, owing to the delay in shoot.
If the latest updates are to go by, RRR might be releasing in theatres only by summer 2022. SS Rajamouli opines next summer would be the right time to release the actioner as he anticipates that the Covid curve is likely to flatten by then and movie-goers will be ready to step out to watch films in cinema halls.
As things stand, Rajamouli is eyeing 2022 summer release for RRR. This would give him more than enough time to complete the post-production and other back-end works.
The final call on RRR’s release date will be taken after assessing the Covid situation. Rajamouli’s immediate focus is on completing the shoot at the earliest.
