Nagarjuna Akkineni is one of the senior heroes in the Tollywood film industry who is currently busy working on two films. One of them is Bangarraju, the prequel to his successful movie Bangarraju. If the reports in trade are true, Nagarjuna wants to release the film during Sankranthi 2022, by directly heading into a box-office fight with young Tollywood heroes.
Ram Charan and Jr NTR will be meeting the audiences with the film RRR on 7th January. Mahesh Babu’s Sarkaru Vaari Paata, Prabhas’ Radhe Shyam, and Pawan Kalyan’s Bheemla Nayak are also scheduled for a grand release during the Sankranthi season.
All the above-mentioned films are coming with a strong buzz at the box office. Now, Nagarjuna is going to head into a box-office clash with these heroes by bringing his Bangarraju on 15th January 2022.
Soggade Chinni Nayana was released on the same date in 2016. The film has become a very big hit and Nag wants the prequel to hit the screens on the same date. Surprisingly, the actor is finishing the film’s shoot at a brisk pace.
Bangarraju was supposed to get a formal launch during March 2020 but multiple reasons including the pandemic delayed the project. The film’s next schedule will be taking place in Mysore and Nagarjuna wants to finish the film in no time so that he can bring the film to theatres on time.
