RRR: Despite Omicron’s rise, the makers were forced to stick to their original release in January due to a lack of solo releases.
In the international belt, RRR has already sold $3 million in tickets.
RRR: Why Isn’t SS Rajamouli’s Ram Charan and Jr NTR Starrer Being Postponed?
Reason Behind the RRR Postpond
RRR, starring Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, and Ajay Devgn and directed by SS Rajamouli, is one of the most anticipated films of the year. At a time when many films are looking to push back their release dates due to the growing number of Omicron cases, the historical action movie is adhering to its original release date of January 7.
While the director just acknowledged it, a source close to the production has now disclosed the true reason. Continue reading to find out what it is.
Now, a trade insider in Hyderabad has revealed the actual reason for the Ram Charan, Jr NTR film not being postponed to Bollywood Hungama. “SS Rajamouli and the crew had requested that numerous film producers – from Bheemla Nayak to F3 and Sarkaru Vaari Paata – postpone their release to make space for the movie,” the insider claimed.
“The team was of the notion that a film created on such a large budget as RRR wanted to make the most during the festival season of Pongal and Sankranti,” the insider continued. All of the producers were nice enough to postpone the film in order to accommodate RRR. All of the films’ producers also announced their new release dates and rescheduled their schedules to coincide with the new dates. On January 7, this movie will be the only film released in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.”
“Now, if they postpone the picture with the Hindi market in mind, all players in the local belt would be dissatisfied,” the source stated, “since efforts were made to ensure the smoothest release of RRR in AP and TG.” Apart from that, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Kerala are all running smoothly. “At the moment, the release issue is only in Hindi, and changing the date for that market would annoy people in all other territories.”
The site reported that unsure of what to do next, team RRR is leaning toward avoiding the Hindi markets on ethical grounds and respecting the efforts and unity shown by the South Indian industry.
That’s not all, though. According to the portal, there’s one more catch: RRR has already sold $3 million worth of tickets in the international belt, and the number is growing by the hour. There is an enormous frenzy overseas, and refunding tickets at the last minute would be tough.
Team RRR has gone all out in terms of marketing, revealing all of its assets and spending a fortune to raise awareness of India’s biggest film to date. If there is a delay, all of the spendings will go haywire.
Let’s wait and see what occurs.
