Corona Crisis disrupted the release plans for a lot of movies. Starting from Nani's V, a lot of films were on the receiving end of losses. V, Red, Nishabdham, Aranya, Uppena, Krishna & His Leela, Bhanumathi Ramakrishna, and a lot of other films were supposed to release in theatres. A few films from the list are on OTT platforms already. The makers of other films are waiting for the opening of theatres. In this scenario, a considerable number of films might arrive at the screens for Pongal next year.
Among all the films, the first biggie that aims to Sankranthi season is Vakeel Saab. Pawan Kalyan plays the lead role in the film. The makers want to kick-start the new year for Tollywood with this biggie.
Sekhar Kammula's Love story makers recently confirmed that their film will hit the theatres only. They want to aim for a December release. But, if it does not work out, they want to come on January 8th, on the occasion of Sankranthi.
Team Krack also announced that the film gears up for a theatrical release. Ravi Teja starrer is in the final leg of the shoot. They are not entertaining the offers coming from OTT platforms.
Mega hero Vaishnav Tej's Uppena is also on the list, for a grand release in theatres. The makers want to launch Vaishnav in a grand manner.
Gopichand's Seetimaarr is also aimed for a grand release for Sankranthi. Also, a few more movies like Solo Brathuke So Better, Nandhi, and Aranya are in the pipeline too.
As we reach the end of the year, we would get clarity on the release dates.
