SS Rajamouli films have been synonymous for being delayed and postponed. Due to that the budgets have gone up but he managed to deliver such good films that they never lost money for producer.
Except for Sye, none of the films were classified as over budgeted too. Even Sye has a huge repeat value and that lasting quality made it profitable over the years.
But postponements have been a feature of his film making and Baahubali films got postponed many times before, he changed that routine for Baahubali-2 in January of 2017.
This time he did more research, took more time to come up with announcement of his next film, RRR with Ram Charan and Jr. NTR.
He announced release date after first schedule as 30th July, but he may have to announce postponement pretty soon. Alia Bhatt is not available for the makers for next two months and Rajamouli couldn't shoot during October first week, when she was supposed to join the team.
Now, she is busy with big bollywood projects and if the movie has to complete on-time, the team might have to find a way to shoot at her convenience, when she is busy working on one film sets or just postpone and shoot when she is completely available.
Rajamouli will clarify on this latest update soon enough. Most probably, he may make another announcement about the complete schedules and status of the project in December.
