It is all gloom and panic everywhere in the nation with the second wave of COVID-19 creating mayhem. With new cases hitting a record and enormous surge in fatalities, life has once again come to a standstill. Particularly, the film industry is seeing a bad time once again. Except for a few, most of the film shoots came to a halt and film releases were postponed. Like all other films, RRR shooting also came to a grinding halt, and this looms uncertainty on its release schedule.
There is still a portion of the film that is left to be shot, and makers had planned to wrap by the end of Summer. But the shooting got cancelled amid the rising corona wave. Although the post-production work is going on full swing, it is not certain, when things will be normal to get back to work. If the current scenario prolongs for a few months just like last year, then things might turn worse. So keeping this in mind, it is heard that RRR team is looking to postpone the release to Sankranti next year.
If RRR postpones and locks Sankranti release, it will have to lock horns with Superstar Mahesh Babu's Sarkaru Vaari Paata, and Pawan-Rana's yet-to-be-titled multi-starrer film. This box-office clash might show an adverse impact on all the three films, and might also prompt Mahesh and Pawan to postpone or advance their release schedule. But if all of them are hell-bent and go ahead to lock the release at the same time, there will be a huge mess with the theatres, collections, etc. However, it is too early to predict things.
