Prabhas Starer Radhe Shyam Postponed: Prabhas Starer and the much-awaited movie Radhe Shyam will not be released on January 14, 2022, as announced earlier by the moviemakers. The filmmakers cited the growing cases of Covid infections for the delay in release. Some of the states have already announced the Night Curfew and many states have announced weekend curfews among other measures to control the spread of the Omicron variant of Corona Virus.
Radhe Shyam Postponed – Official Statement by Creators
Radhe Shyam Postponed: “We have been trying our best for the past few days but considering the growing cases of Omicron variant, it looks like we will have to wait for our labor of love to get to the big screens. Radhe Shyam is a story about love vs destiny and we are sure that your love will help us raise over these tough times together. Will see you in cinemas soon,” said UV Creations, the producer of Radhe Shyam in a statement on Wednesday through their official Twitter handle.
This announcement comes days after the release of director SS Rajamouli’s RRR was also pushed due to the pandemic.
Due to the growing cases of Covid-19 infections all across the country, several states have imposed various restrictions and guidelines to control the public movement and further spread of Omicron.
In some of the major states like Delhi, Haryana, and Bihar, the cinema halls have been asked to close the operations until further notice. In Karnataka, the government has imposed a 50 percent cap on the occupancy in theatres. And the Tamil Nadu government is also expected to announce strict Covid-19 measures soon.
Some of the states have also imposed night curfew and weekend curfew to control the spread of the latest coronavirus variant.
The governments in the Telugu states have not announced any restrictions yet. Even otherwise the ongoing issue of the low movie ticket price in Andhra Pradesh is likely to undercut the film’s box office earning potential. The whole situation is not very good for the filmmakers to give Radhe Shyam a nationwide release on the big screen and cover its budget as expected from such front-loaded movies.
In the meantime, Valimar producer Boney Kapoor is apparently confident of making sure his movie arrives in cinemas worldwide on January 13 as announced earlier.
The reports suggest that the filmmaker is in the plan to go ahead with the movies’ release even if the Tamil Nadu government brings back a 50 percent cap on theatre occupancy. It is worth noting that last year a handful of big star movies (Master, Karnan) became a hit at the box office despite the 50 percent cap.
Valimai creators are planning to release on January 13 in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi.
