Sankranthi 2024 is turning out to be a solid season as the films released are making big numbers. Here's looking at the films lined up for Sankranthi 2025.
Sankranthi is one of the most lucrative seasons for films to release in Tollywood. Every year there are close to four or five films that get released between the dates of January 12-15 which marks the festive weekend and is celebrated on a grand note in Telugu states.
There is always competition for biggies to lock the release dates of their films during this season and in 2024, we saw as many as four films, HanuMan, Naa Saami Ranga, Saindhav, and Guntur Kaaram fighting it out at the box office.
Seeing the way these films have performed, there is a massive fight for the year 2025 already. A few films have already been confirmed for the Sankranthi 2025 and let's look at the projects set to release during this time.
Vishwambhara is megastar Chiranjeevi's latest film that is being made on a massive scale. Vassishta, the director of Bimbisara, is helming this fantasy drama that will release during the Sankranthi season of 2025. MM Keeravani will compose music for this film, which has Mrunal Thakur as the female lead.

Shatamanam Bhavati was a big hit in 2017 and was released as a Sankranthi special in the same year.
