Of late, several reliable reports have been claiming that Rajamouli’s magnum opus creation RRR would be hitting the silver screens next Sankranthi season. However, the latest developments are suggesting that Rajamouli is tracking back on RRR’s Sankranthi release plan.
Rajamouli is contemplating the summer 2022 release for RRR now. He opines that Northern India and the overseas theatrical market will not open up full-fledged by the coming January season. With the box office prospects in mind, Rajamouli is said to have altered RRR’s release plans.
The master craftsman is now eyeing the 2022 summer release for RRR. He is interested in locking early April release for the Jr NTR and Ram Charan starrer. This way, he will have more than enough time to carry out the post-production works and also come up with a consolidated promotional plan for the film.
The producer, Danayya has left the responsibility of taking the final call on the release date to Rajamouli. The onus is now on the seasoned filmmaker to pick the optimal release date for RRR. He is working on the same now.
RRR’s final cut is expected to be readied by the end of this December. The makers will be announcing the new release date only after the effect of the Covid pandemic subsides substantially and the global theatrical market opens up. Meanwhile, both Ram Charan and Jr NTR have moved on to their upcoming projects RC15 and NTR30 respectively.
