With the theatres being unlocked in Maharashtra the tumble of new releases has become torrential. Much as major boxoffice clashes need to be avoided we now have the news that two of the biggest pan-India Telugu-Hindi releases of 2021-22 are being released on the same day.

S S Rajamouli’s RRR and the Prabhas starrer Radhe Shyam are being readied for a simultaneous all-India release on Wednesday January 12 in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.

Confirming this decisive development a source from Hyderabad tells me, “It is more less locked in. Both are lavish big-budget projects and they are being released together for Makar Sankranti. There is nothing stressful about it. Even from before they did Baahubali together, Raja Sir and Prabhas Sir are very close friends. They took a collective decision to release their films together.They believe there is room for two big film during the festive weekend.”

Although in Telugu, Radhe Shyam and RRR are very different movie experiences.
