Telangana state is registering nearly 1000 corona positive cases daily. Experts say the state is yet to reach the peak stage. In other words, the corona crisis will continue to create havoc and fear for another two months. The shoots of the big movies will also not resume.

Result: Megastar Chiranjeevi’s ‘Acharya’ will not make it to Sankranthi 2021. This Koratala Siva directed message-oriented drama now needs to look for the summer 2020 window. The shoot of ‘Acharya’ was halted in March when the corona cases were under 100 in Telangana.

The megastar starrer has completed only 40 percent of the shoot until now. Kajal Aggarwal who has signed the movie is yet to join.

On the other hand, Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Vakeel Saab’ is the solo biggie that has high chances to hit the screens on the Sankranthi festival. For, all it needs to complete just 30 days of the shoot. Pawan Kalyan has already wrapped up a major portion. Even if he can join the shoot in October, the movie’s entire shoot will be finished by December.

Pawan Kalyan is making a comeback to the movie field after a gap of two months in ‘Vakeel Saab’ which is the remake of Bollywood hit, ‘Pink’. Directed by Venu Sriram, the film is produced by Dil Raju.
