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 :-)"
