According to the latest sources, the industry biggies including the Active Telugu Film Producers’ Guild want the film to be postponed. With RRR releasing on the 7th and Radhe Shyam releasing on 14th, Bheemla Nayak would surely throw a competition to other releases.

But, the producer of Bheemla Nayak does not want his film to be postponed again. Already, he built a buzz around the film and prepared the audiences to witness the movie for Sankranthi next year.

Despite making multiple announcements about no change in the film’s release date, people are still speculating about the release date of the movie which clearly shows that the fingers will be constantly pointed towards the film’s postponement in an attempt to kill the buzz around the film.

But, as promised, the makers want to bring Bheemla Nayak to theatres on 12th January 2022, without fail.

Let us wait and see if there is a shuffle in the film’s release dates.

The drugs case in the Tollywood film industry has troubled many film personalities. It all started back in 2017 and did not arrive at a conclusion. The case popped up again recently but now, we hear that the drugs case is getting closed without any proper conclusion. Since the officials did not find anything substantial, they are going to close the case.

Tollywood Drugs Case

It all started back in 2017 when the Abkari officials arrested a Drug dealer Kelvin. Kelvin, in the investigation, claimed to have supplied drugs to several film personalities in Telugu and also revealed the names of some. Later, the officials investigated the celebrities but did not find anything strong.

The case slowly took the back seat. However, with Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise and his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty getting stuck in a drugs case, the Enforcement Directorate officials reached Hyderabad in connection with the same. They also questioned the celebrities in Tollywood about their alleged involvement in the usage and export of drugs.

Director Puri Jagannath, actors Ravi Teja, Tanish, Charmmee Kaur, Tarun, Rana Daggubati, Rakul Preet Singh, and 5 others faced the questions of the ED officials. The officials also examined the bank statements of these celebrities. The investigation took place in August and September of this year.
