Looks like the makers of RRR are all set to announce their film's release date very soon. If reports are to be believed, after several negotiations with the makers of other Sankranti releases including Sarkaru Vaari Paata, Radhe Shyam and Bheemla Nayak, the team has finally decided to release to film on January 7 (Friday).
According to a Bollywood Hungama report, a source close to the film has revealed that the makers have locked January 7 as the release date. They quoted the source as saying, "Earlier it was decided that the film would release on October 13 on the auspicious occasion of Dussehra. With the pandemic bringing the industry to a standstill, the filming got delayed. The makers of RRR are gearing up to make the announcement of their magnum opus project. With all tent pole films have taken up major dates, the filmmaker is probably kicking off the year with RRR. It's been learned that 2022 will be with Ram Charan and Jr NTR starrer as the film release on January 7, 2022."
Well, with the latest buzz trending on social media big time, we will have to wait and watch to see what unfolds in the days to come.
On a related note, after multiple postponements, the film was previously scheduled to be released on October 13. However, the makers on September 11 shared that RRR will not be releasing on the scheduled date owing to the indefinite shutdown of theatres at places.
The team had tweeted, "Post production nearly done to have #RRRMovie ready by October'21. But as known to many, we are postponing the release but cannot announce a new date with theatres indefinitely closed. We will release at the earliest possible date when the world cinema markets are up and running."
