The makers of RRR had recently announced that the film would not be released in theatres on January 7, much to the disappointment of fans and followers. This decision was taken given the spike in Covid cases across the country. “Despite our relentless efforts, some situations are beyond our control. As many Indian states are closing theatres, we are left with no choice but to ask you to hold on to your excitement. We promise to bring back the Glory of Indian Cinema and at the right time, WE WILL.” the statement from the makers of RRR read as they announced the postponement of the film’s release.
Now, we are hearing that the makers of RRR are considering a new release date for the film. As things stand now, the makers of the Rajamouli directorial are seeing April 29 as the optimal new release date for the film. They are considering the summer season release slot and the April release prospect. The final call regarding the release date will be taken only after the regional and international theatrical markets open up. The makers are waiting for the Covid situation in India and USA to ease up before they drop an official update on the release date.
For RRR to hit the silver screens, the north India belt should be in full flow, and there should be no restrictions on seating capacity in the USA. Only then can the buyers recover the vast investments they made on the project. Rajamouli will be continually assessing the situation, and he will take the final call on the release date when the time comes. Till then, April 29 will remain to be the tentative release date. It is all directly related to the Covid situation across the globe now. Funny how a virus that originated in China is affecting RRR in so many more ways than now.
RRR is a heavy-duty action drama directed by Rajamouli, and it has Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgan, and others in important roles. The makers have spent upwards of Rs 400 crores on the mega project.
