Filmmaker SS Rajamouli ‘s RRR is still waiting for a theatrical release. On Friday it was announced that the multi-lingual film will be released on March 18 or April 28. Two unique release dates have been chosen and the producers want to give their best shot and don’t want to miss an ideal release time.
All the social media handles of RRR wrote “If the pandemic situation in the country gets better and all theatres open up to operate at full capacity, we are ready to release the film on 18th March 2022. Otherwise, RRR Movie will release on 28th April 2022.”
Earlier, the RRR movie was supposed to release on January 7 in 4 languages, Hindi, Tamil, Telegu and Kannada. It got postponed due to the sharp hike in coronavirus cases due to the omicron variant. The producers were “left with no choice” since several states of the country had shut down their theatres.
RRR stars Ram Charan and Jr NTR as freedom fighters Alluri Sitaraman Raju and Komaram Bheem, respectively. The film also features Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in cameos.
The film has a massive budget of Rs 400 crore and one interval sequence in the movie was worth Rs 75 lakh per night, and it was shot for 65 nights.
“If things are not flowing smoothly when we are shooting big sequences… Like, for example, we were shooting the interval sequence [in RRR] for 65 nights and there were hundreds of actors were flown from different countries to play their part. And each night of shooting cost Rs 75 lakh. So if something is not happening on the clock I get really really tense, I get really really angry. I get really, really upset. I blew my top off during those times other than that I’m pretty much calm and composed,” the director told The Quint.
The team has started out with their promotional and hopefully it’s going to be a hit among its audience too.
