Working with top star heroes is always tricky and it is even more difficult when coronavirus is spreading fast not once but multiple times. The biggest example of this is Koratala Siva. The star writer-director made his debut with 'Mirchi' and made blockbusters like 'Srimanthudu', 'Janatha Garage' and 'Bharat Ane Nenu'. His last film was with Mahesh Babu and this political drama came out in the summer of 2018.
It has been nearly 4 years since we saw Koratala's film. He announced his next with NTR and there are also talks about his project with Allu Arjun but none of them went on to the floors now. Movie lovers are missing the content from Koratala Siva but he is in a difficult position.
He agreed a film with Megastar Chiranjeevi as the lead. The star hero was making 'Sye Raa' at that time and it was released in October 2019. Koratala thought of arriving with his 'Acharya' in the summer of 2020 but it when the Coronavirus broke out. We all know the problems it caused and it got delayed. After multiple delays over the last two years due to lockdowns, the makers finalised on February 4th as the release date.
But the third wave has hit the nation and insiders reveal that 'Acharya' may get postponed again. Koratala is hugely affected both financially and in terms of brand. The star director would have earned a lot if 'Acharya' or corona hadn't damaged his plans. We need to see when Koratala comes out of 'Acharya' and makes other films.
As we know, Charan will be getting a pan-Indian market after the release of 'RRR' and the team of 'Acharya' is reportedly planning to capitalize on it. As the 'Magadheera' hero is playing a crucial role, the film has a lot of scope to perform well in the North market too. Kajal Agarwal is the heroine for Chiranjeevi in 'Acharya' while Pooja Hegde will be seen romancing Charan. Mani Sharma is the music composer for this social drama and the lead actor will be seen as a Naxalite in this film. There are a lot of expectations on this movie and it is to be seen if Koratala maintains his 100% success record with 'Acharya' or not.
