SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus film RRR that stars Ram Charan, Jr. NTR, Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt has recently been making waves for its record-breaking deal with its satellite and digital partners. The film will be releasing in 5 Indian and 5 Foreign languages.
Rajamouli’s father who is also a veteran screenwriter, recently revealed how intense the film’s action scenes are. The film was earlier supposed to release in October, 2021 but however, that seems impossible and here’s why!
An actor, who is a part of RRR, said that SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus may get postponed indefinitely. He added, “It’s not only the escalation in Covid cases and the casualties. Now one of the film’s leading men (Jr NTR) has tested positive. Prior to him, Ram Charan tested positive. Alia who is yet to start shooting with Rajamouli, had also been tested positive for Covid.”

Although Jr NTR has now tested negative, but this has definitely changed the shoot plans for the makers.
“There is still a lot of shooting remaining. Even if the Covid crisis improves by October there is no way Raja Sir can complete and release the film on time (in October),” the actor told Subhash K Jha. It remains to be seen when the makers plan the release of their mega budget film.
On the possible release date of RRR, the source adds, “Not before January 2022, and that is a conservative estimate. The delay can be much much more.”
