Rajinikanth’s-Next-Gives-Clarity-On-RRR--ReleaseSuperstar Rajinikanth’s next outing Annaatthe is all set to hit the screens for Sankranthi 2021. It was earlier slated to release for Diwali 2020.

The reason for the delay is the covid-19 virus. As we all know, all the major biggies have been postponed owing to the pandemic. It has shut down the work and the business related to movies. Moving to Sankranthi 2021 doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

However, what it means in Telugu context is that RRR is all but postponed. RRR makers haven’t officially announced the postponement. But, another biggie coming at the same time suggests the same indirectly. Not that RRR can’t arrive, but it won’t get the much needed open window across all industries for its humongous budget.

Also, effectively the Rajinikanth starrer is the first and only film to announce Pongal 2021 date officially. There are many Telugu biggies which are looking at coming at the same time but didn’t announce due to RRR. It might change in the coming days.
