The outburst and agitation in Seemandhra, which has continued for the ninth day, has caused upheaval in the political arena in the state. The Samaikyandhra supporters have also boycotted the screening of all Telugu movies, posing a threat to the films of many biggies. The release of a few big-budget flicks has been already postponed. But director Harish Shankar says that there is no change in the release date of Junior NTR's upcoming movie Ramayya Vasthavayya.
Chiranjeevi, and late actor and ex-CM of Andhra Pradesh, NTR's families are from Seemandhra region. Besides being influential in the film industry, they have also got strong political background. The Samaikyandhra supporters are very upset with both families as they feel that they could have avoided the division of the state. So they have decided to boycott their family movies.
Due to this threat, the release of Yevadu starring Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan Teja, and Attarintiki Daredi featuring his brother Pawan Kalyan, have already been delayed. It was rumoured that the release of Junior NTR starrer Ramayya Vasthavayya, which is slated to hit the screens in September, would be postponed.
Gabbar Singh fame Harish Shankar, who is directing Junior NTR in Ramayya Vasthavayya, took to his Twitter page on Tuesday to silence the rumour mongers. The director says the movie is currently in the post-production stage and will release on time. He tweeted, "Ramayya Vastaava is releasing on Sept 27 th ... Already Dubbing work started :-)"
NTR To Romance Two Heroines
Junior NTR is playing the hero in the film, but the makers have kept the details about his role under wraps. He will romance two leading heroines, Samantha and Shruti Hassan. This is his second movie with Samantha after Brindavanam. Vidyullekha Raman, P Ravi Shankar, Rao Ramesh and Paruchuri Prasad are in the supporting cast.
S Thaman's Music For RV
S Thaman, who has earlier worked with Harish Shankar in Mirapakay, has teamed up with him again for the second time. He has composed the soundtrack for Ramayya Vasthavayya, which will be released soon. Chota K Naidu has handled cinematography for the film.
It was rumoured earlier that Harish Shankar would title the film as MLA Manchi Lakshanalu Unna Abbai, but due to creative differences the team removed it. After Dil Raju registered the title, it was also rumored that the title would be used for this movie. But ultimately, the makers announced that Ramayya Vasthavayya would be the title for Harish-NTR combo movie.
