The movie failed to make an impact from first day first show and that did affect financial status of Dasari Narayana Rao, producer and director, to take forced voluntary retirement.
The movie did not even get a proper Satellite deal and it doesn't have any digital deal too, even today. In the film, NBK played the role of a movie star and as part of showing him in shoots and acting in films, Dasari used getups and Komaram Bheem was one.
Had the movie become a hit, Dasari announced that he would love to make a film on Komaram Bheem. He couldn't but now, SS Rajamouli is making Komaram Bheem and Alluri Seetharamaraju characters as main leads in his historical fiction film, RRR.
Jr. NTR is playing Komaram Bheem and Ram Charan is playing Alluri Seetharamaraju, in the film. Fans are excited to see both actors action posters.
But the movie is planned for a release in July next year. Rajamouli believes in conceal and reveal strategy for all his films. He tells the story but doesn't reveal anything else until 3-4 months before release and once, he starts his campaign, he will ensure that movie gets maximum gain from any strategy, they apply.
So, any update other than a patriotic message from team RRR, even though they are banking on that emotion, will be highly unexpected at this moment. But one fan couldn't hold back his excitement with a fake poster from Parama Veera Chakra edited to fit Jr. NTR as Komaram Bheem.
You can see the differences between body and body language of Jr. NTR & NBK in the poster. But fans and some media outlets just got too excited!
