Upcoming Telugu film RRR is SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus and there is a lot of buzz about the film. There are several promotional events going on for the film and one can see the excitement about it. The film was originally scheduled to release on July 30, 2020. However, the release had to be delayed several times due to the Covid-19 pandemic. There were also recent rumors about the postponement of its release due to the threat of the new Omicron version.
Clearing all the speculations regarding the release of the star-studded film, the makers have now confirmed that the film will release on January 7 next year.
The makers of the film announced the date by sharing a poster of the film featuring Ram Charan and Jr NTR. The poster features two stars with the caption, “Ram and Bheem. RRR on January 7. This clearly shows that RRR will not face any delay in getting a theatrical release now.
The Maharashtra government recently announced only 50 per cent occupancy in cinemas and also imposed night curfew. As a result, films scheduled for pan-India release are expected to struggle in the Maharashtra circuit.
RRR is set in the pre-independence era and inspired by real freedom fighters Alluri Sitarama Raju (played by Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (played by Jr NTR). On the other hand, according to the makers of the film, the events depicted in the film are purely fictional. Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgan are playing important roles in the film. A pre-release event was held on 27 December in Chennai. Tamil star Sivakarthikeyan and filmmaker-turned-politician Udayanidhi Stalin attended the event.
