Amid the surge in coronavirus cases in the country and concerns over the new Omicron variant, release dates of many films including SS Rajamouli's RRR and Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Jersey’ have been postponed.
After RRR and Jersey's postponement, rumours were abuzz that Prabhas starrer 'Radhe Shyam' would also be postponed.
However, 'Radhe Shyam' makers have denied rumours of postponement and assured that the film will be released on the scheduled date on the auspicious occasion of Makar Sankranthi, with an official statement.
The official statement from UV Creations read, "There is no change in the release plans of 'Radhe Shyam'. The Prabhas-starrer is gearing up to hit the screens on January 14. Don't believe the rumours."
The makers, hence, released a new poster with the release date from 'Radhe Shyam', which assured the fans that there is no postponement regarding the 'Radhe Shyam' release.
Starring Prabhas and Pooja Hegde as the lead pair, 'Radhe Shyam' is billed as an epic love story helmed by Radha Krishna Kumar. In the movie, Prabhas appears as a palmist, Vikram Aditya.
Notably, the makers of 'Jersey’, which was scheduled to release on December 31, 2021, have indefinitely pushed the release of the movie in view of the current circumstances and new guidelines in place to contain the spread.
Similarly, S.S. Rajamouli's 'RRR', one of the most-awaited pan-India movies, which was scheduled to release on January 7, have also been postponed till the situation improves.
The decision to defer the release date was announced on the official Twitter account of the RRR film. The post read, "Keeping the best interests of all the involved parties in mind, we are forced to postpone our film. Our sincere thanks to all the fans and audience for their unconditional love #RRRPPostopened #RRRMovie"
"Inspite our relentless efforts some situations are beyond our control. As many Indian states are closing theatres, we are left with no choice but to ask you to hold on to your excitement. We promise to bring back the Glory of Indian Cinema and at the right time, WE WILL," the post added.
