The intensifying pandemic really seems to be taking a toll on the film industry as yet another highly anticipated film, Acharya, has decided to postpone its theatrical release. The film, which was scheduled to be released in theatres on February 4, has been postponed indefinitely due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country.

The announcement was made by the filmmakers on their official social media handles. Urging fans to take necessary precautions and stay safe, the makers said that a new release date would be announced soon.

Check out the post below.

Acharya joins the likes of films such as RRR, Radhe Shyam, and Bheemla Nayak, all of which have postponed their initial release dates owing to the intensifying pandemic situation in the country.

The upcoming film will tell the story of a Naxalite who decides to rebel against the corrupt officials who he believes misused the donations of a temple.

The film stars father-son duo Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan in the lead roles, their first major on-screen collaboration together. Previously, Chiranjeevi had made appearances in Charan’s films, such as Bruce Lee and Magadheera.

Kajal Aggarwal and Pooja Hegde will essay the roles of the female leads in Acharya. Sonu Sood, Jisshu Sengupta, Saurav Lokesh, Kishore, Posani Krishna Murali, and Tanikella Bharani also feature in the film.

Koratala Siva has directed the film, which is bankrolled by Charan and Niranjan Reddy under the banners of Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainment. The film's music was composed by Mani Sharma. The post-theatrical streaming rights of the upcoming film have reportedly been bagged by Amazon Prime Video.
