It was reported earlier that Naayak would release on January 14 as Ram Charan Teja's treat for the Sankranthi. Later it was rumoured that the movie was withdrawn from the Pongal race and DVV Danayya's financial hardships were said to be the reason behind the delay in the release of the film.
DVV Danayya, who has pinned lots of hope on Naayak, has slammed the reports about its postponement. The producer says that the rumours about the release date of Naayak are rubbish and baseless. He confirms that the film is scheduled for the festive season and it will release on January 9, 2013.
However, Naayak is going to be an action adventure, which is directed by VV Vinayak. Ram Charan Teja is essaying a double role in this film, which has a novel plot and he will romance two heroines like Kajal Aggarwal and Amala Paul. It is a full-fledged entertainer and expected to give another big break to Cherry.
