Release Of  Rajamouli’s Alia Bhatt Starrer RRR Postponed  Indefinitely - EXCLUSIVE
These are not the best of times  for movie makers who are reeling under the impact of the current monstrous pandemic. No one feels the pinch harder  in the Indian entertainment than Baahubali director SS  Rajamouli. His post-Baahubali opus RRR a lavish period drama featuring Telugu superstars  Ramcharan Teja and NTR Jr along with Bollywood superstars Ajay Devgan and Alia Bhatt, has  faced persistent rough weather  due to the pandemic. 

The film’s release date has been postponed repeatedly. Now the most recent release date 13  October stands annulled.

One of the actors from the  project tells me, “It’s not only the escalation in Covid cases and  the casualties. Now one of the  film’s leading men(NTR Jr) has  tested positive. Prior to him Ramcharan tested postitive.Alia who is yet to start shooting with  Rajamouli, had also been tested positive for Covid.”


 Where  does that leave RRR?

“Not in a  very happy place, I’m afraid,” the actor informs. 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  source hazards an intelligent guess about the possible release date of RRR. “Not before January 2022, and  that is a conservative  estimate. The delay can be much much more.”

All we  can say to that is, all good things take their own sweet time.
