With unexpected lockdown in the nation, several films are set to reschedule their release dates and Chiranjeevi-Koratala's Aacharya also has found a new release date. After zeroing in on Kajal Aggarwal for the female lead role, makers decided to bring the film in August, this year. But, the lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic has led to further delay in its shoot. Thus, in all likelihood, the film may get shifted to next year Sankranthi.
Already, SS Rajamouli has blocked Pongal for his most awaited multistarrer 'RRR'. It is a big-budget film that requires a big holiday season like Sankranthi to make massive gains at the box-office. Besides RRR, the Pongal season can accommodate one more movie. Now, Aacharya is looking to grab that chance without giving any sort of scope to others.
Anil Ravipudi's F3 was initially planned for Pongal release, but the project is yet to be finalized and the director is still working on the script. Whereas, Chiru's 'Aacharya' is currently in the shooting stage and decent portion of filming is finished. While it remains to be seen how fans will receive two mega films in the same season, it is going to be a clash between the two most successful filmmakers of TFI - SS Rajamouli and Koratala Siva!
