Naa Peru Shiva 2

Naa Peru Shiva 2, the dubbed version of the Tamil film Madras, starring Karthi and Catherine Tresa in the lead roles, was a surprise entrant in the Sankranthi race in Telugu cinema. The film's release was announced in the last minute, with the makers Studio Green finalising that it would hit theatres on January 13. However, with some afterthought, the team isn't sticking to its plan and is skipping its release for Sankranthi.

An official statement from the production house says, "In view of the alarming surge in new Covid-19 cases, the film's release has been postponed indefinitely." The producer KE Gnanavel Raja had added that the new release date will be announced once normalcy is restored. The original, Madras, that also starred Kalaiyarasan in a key role was a major success in Tamil that cemented Pa Ranjith's authority as a storyteller.

With Pa Ranjith's popularity soaring in Telugu cinema after Sarpatta Parambarai and Karthi being an established star in Telugu, Studio Green had backed its chances for Sankranthi, though the crowded release slot and growing Omicron cases haven't helped their cause. Naa Peru Shiva 2 has music by Santosh Narayanan. Murali G had cranked the camera for the project produced by KE Gnanavel Raja. Pa Ranjith had even penned the story for the film.

The film's first part, Naa Peru Shiva, meanwhile was the Telugu version of Karthi's another Tamil hit Naan Mahaan Alla, where he was paired opposite Kajal Aggarwal.
