Once again, COVID‘s curves are moving downwards and restrictions on cinemas in different parts of the country are being relaxed. The box office release calendar has begun to take shape again, with significant developments taking place today. A few official announcements came to light while many of the releases in the trade were confirmed, with official announcements to be made in the coming days.
In official announcements, RRR was the first to make history. Last week, the filmmakers shared their plans to release the film on March 11 or April 28. Today, March 25, the team finalized Puneeth Raj Kumar’s last film, avoiding a clash with James, which was released posthumously on March 17. The makers of Pawan Kalyan’s Bheemla Nayak have announced their plans to release the film on February 25 or April 1, most likely after that.
