The Release date for the film is yet to be decided. The official Twitter account of UV Creations, which has backed ‘Radhe Shyam‘, shared the statement announcing the film’s delay.
“We have been trying our best over the past few days but considering the mounting cases of Omicron variant it looks like we will have to wait for our labour of love to go to the big screens.. ‘Radhe Shyam’ is a narrative of love against destiny and we are convinced our love will enable us ride over these tough times together. We shall see you at the cinemas soon,” the note read.
Prabhas plays Vikramaditya, a man who falls in love with Prerana (Hegde), a woman he meets in the 1970s.
There were already suspicions that the film would get delayed due to the surge in Covid-positive patients. So far, the release of films like multi-starrer epic drama by SS Rajamouli ‘RRR’ and Shahid Kapoor -starrer ‘Jersey’ have had to postpone due to the virus, while ‘Radhe Shyam’ was expected to shortly join the list.
Kapoor’s ‘Jersey’ was also due to enter the theatres on December 31 while ‘RRR’, starring Ram Charan, Jr NTR and Alia Bhatt, was gearing up for a major release on January 7.
