Chiranjeevi's Acharya postponed?
The new release date of the film is yet to be finalised, says a source
The release of Chiranjeevi-starrer Acharya has been postponed due to rising Covid-19 cases in the Telugu States, say reports. The socio-political entertainer was slated for release on May 13, but the makers are planning to hold the film for a better release window.
"The stakes are high for Acharya and it is important for the makers to release the film at an appropriate time. The exam season in the two Telugu states, the spike in Covid-19 cases, and also the delay in the production all contribute to this deferment of the release," says a source adding, "The new date is yet to be finalised. The film is likely to be out either mid-July or early August."
Directed by Koratala Siva, Acharya tells the story of a carpenter-turned-naxalite who is on a mission to conserve natural resources. Also starring Ram Charan, Pooja Hegde and Sonu Sood, the film has music by Mani Sharma.
