RRR Movie Postponed

Rise, Roar, Revolt (RRR) has been postponed once again amid a surge in the COVID-19 cases in the country and concerns over the new Omicron variant.

To prevent a clash with 'RRR' during Sankranthi, big-budget films like Alia Bhatt's 'Gangubai Kathiawadi and Pawan Kalyan's 'Bheemla Nayak' were postponed.

The production teams of this movie with famous actors like Jr NTR, Ram Charan, and Alia Bhatt announced on January 1, 2022, via Twitter.

They cleared that the film's release date has been extended again to a later date.

The film was supposed to release on on January 7, 2022, which was directed by Bahubali fame director SS Rajamouli.

"Despite our relentless efforts, some situations are beyond our control," the creators wrote in a Facebook post on January 1, 2022.

We have no choice but to ask you to hang on to your excitement as many Indian states close theatres.

  • Pawan Kalyan and Rana Daggubati's Bheemla Nayak and 
  • Alia Bhatt's Gangubai Kathiawadi, 

Both were postponed to prevent a box-office clash with these Blockbuster.
