The recent update from the RRR team is its release date changed again. No more expectancy in 2020. The new release date is Jan 8, 2021. Yes, the film is targeted at Sankranti Season 2021.
As the 2020 Opening blockbusters, Ala Vaikunthapurramulo and Sarileru Neekevvaru were got onto Sankranthi strike, successfully collected almost all 200-200 crore gross in Telugu states itself. This is a quiet magic figure to film industry also. When two big movies, even though released at the same time, could bring about 200 crore collection, it is certain to understand the Telugu movie market and the audience strength right at a particular season which is definitely Pongal.
The industry doubts that the recent figures might have got calculated in Rajamouli's mind that he, from both sides i.e., making a movie ( time sense ) and marketing movie ( money sense ), is little free now.
RRR is a team project of Rajamouli, Ram Charan and Taraka Ramarao in a big-budget handled by DVV Entertainment.
