The unexpected postponement of the highly anticipated movie “Salaar” has sent shockwaves through both fans and the film industry. While the exact reasons behind the delay remain undisclosed, it is now confirmed that Salaar shows have been removed from US theaters’ websites, and distributors have been informed of the indefinite delay.
Taking advantage of this vacant long weekend, Ram Pothineni’s “Skanda” has made a strategic move by shifting its original release date from September 15 to September 28. It is rumored that director Boyapati insisted on releasing “Skanda” on September 15th to coincide with Ganesh Chathurthi, but the Salaar delay prompted them to reschedule.
The sudden halt in “Skanda’s” promotional activities left fans of Ram in confusion. However, it appears that the team is planning significant promotions for the end of the month. Apart from a lyrical video update by Thaman, “Skanda” has not released any new content.
The initial trailer of “Skanda” received mixed feedback due to its extreme mass visuals, drawing unfavorable comparisons to the ill-fated “Vinaya Vidheya Rama.” To address this, the team is working on a new trailer cut to mitigate any potential damage.
With the release date now set, “Skanda” has ample time to engage and attract the mass audience through effective promotions. Despite facing competition from other films like “Mad,” “Rules Ranjan,” and “Pedakaapu” during the same weekend, “Skanda” seems to hold an advantage with Ram, Boyapati, and Sreeleela in its lineup.
