The vaccination drive in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh is picking up. At this rate, 40 to 50 % of people in the Telugu states are likely to get vaccinated by September or October. This is good news for the Telugu film industry.
Tollywood producers and big stars are closely observing the developments to plan their movies. Distributors and exhibitors are hoping that the theatrical business would return to normalcy by Dussera. From August itself, select theaters would run with 50 percent seating capacity.
These developments have made the producers plan for releases from Dussera. Megastar Chiranjeevi’s ‘Acharya’, Prabhas’s ‘Radhe Shyam’, and Yash’s ‘KGF’ are eying on this holiday season. Other medium-range films like ‘Love Story’, ‘Most Eligible Bachelor’, and ‘Tuck Jagadish’ are likely to release in September.
RRR to announce its new date
Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has already been pushed to 2022. But the makers are waiting for the right time to announce its news release date. The movie has been postponed multiple times. The first part of Allu Arjun’s ‘Pushpa’ may plan for December 2021 release or Sankranthi 2022.
However, all these plans will come into fruition only if everything goes according to the plan and the vaccination drive goes at a rapid pace without any issues.
