The third wave of the Covid pandemic is hitting India hard and several states across the country are reporting a record number of cases every day. The twin Telugu states Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are also reporting increased caseload now, which is a worrisome sign. Given the current situation, pertaining to the Covid outbreak, it is impossible to have pan-India releases as the cinema halls across the country are running with restricted occupancies and several other pre-set regulations. But things look set to brighten up in the near future and the makers of RRR are looking to make full use of the same.

As per a few observations from top medical professionals, including renowned personality - Dr. Guruva Reddy, who is based at Hyderabad, this could be the final wave of the pandemic. "This could be the final wave of the Covid outbreak in India. This is the kind of trend we usually see when a pandemic is about to turn into a lesser severe endemic. Normalcy, at least to a good effect might be restore soon," he observes.

If the effect of the Covid outbreak really subsides, then we can expect new theatrical releases to line up in the next few weeks. Once theatres resume operations in a full-fledged manner, the likes of RRR, Radhe Shyam, Acharya, and others will be gearing up for theatrical releaase. There are estimates claiming that the Covid pandemic might be turning into an endemic in the next few months. But this very subjective for now as Covid outbreak is near impossible to predict.

The makers of RRR are now continually assessing the Covid situation and they inded to keep track of the Covid outbreak in order to orchestrate the right release plan for the film. If the effect of the Covid outbreak goes down considerably and theatres reopen in the next couple of months, the chances of RRR hitting the silver screens across the globe this April are pretty high. The makers are keeping their options open for now and more details about the same will be out correspondingly. Stay tuned as we will keep you posted.
