Fans of ‘RRR Movie’ will have to wait for the biggest treat of the year featuring acting heavy weights Alia Bhatt, Jr. NTR, Ram Charan and Ajay Devgn. The makers of the film have indefinitely postponed the film’s release date owing to the shut down of theatres in several states across the country.
RRR Movie was slated to release on January 7, 2022.
Announcing the latest update on the movie release on Twitter, the official statement for the postponement of RRR read, “Inspite of 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 promised to bring back The Glory of Indian Cinema, and at the right time, WE WILL.”
Further, they thanked all the fans for their love and support.

“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. #RRRPostponed #RRRMovie,” the tweet read.
Set in pre-independence India, ‘RRR’ is a fictional take on the younger days of celebrated freedom fighters, Komaram Bheem and Alluri Seetharama Raju, portrayed by Jr. NTR and Ram Charan.
‘RRR‘ was originally planned as a July 30, 2020 release. However, the unforeseen delays, including those caused by injuries suffered by Jr NTR and Ram during production, forced the makers to push the release date.
The makers then pushed the release date to October 13, 2021, but due to the theatres not being fully functional, the makers postponed that date too.
Produced by DVV Entertainments, the news of RRR being delayed comes just six days ahead of its release in theatres and before the grand promotional activities being carried out across the country.
The decision to defer the release date was announced on the official Twitter account of RRR film.
“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,” the tweet read.
In an accompanying statement, the makers said they are “forced” to not release the movie as theatres are being shut in many states across the country.
