Rumour has it that not only RRR but even Prabhas and Pooja Hegde starrer Radhe Shyam might get postponed. The makers have moved out of the Sankranthi race due to several theatres shut down in the north. Also in addition to over 180 theatres shut-in AP.

If rumours do come true then both ‘RRR’ and ‘Radhe Shyam’ will likely choose Summer 2022.
