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.
