The Sankranthi festival in 2024 seems to promise an exciting lineup of movies, but the anticipated clash at the box office might witness a shuffle in release dates. Guntur Kaaram, slated for January 12th, stands firm in its Sankranthi release, but speculation looms over other major contenders like Venkatesh’s Saindhav, Raviteja’s Eagle, Vijay Deverakonda’s Family Star, and Teja’s HanuMan.
Reports suggest Vijay Deverakonda’s Family Star might miss the Sankranthi deadline due to incomplete shooting, hinting at a probable delay to ensure a polished final product. With merely two months remaining, the production schedule appears tight, potentially forcing the movie to seek a later release date. Additionally, rumors swirl around the possible repositioning of Raviteja’s Eagle and Venkatesh’s Saindhav from the Sankranthi slot, adding further uncertainty to the lineup.
Even dubbed movies like Lal Salaam and Captain Miller eye a Sankranthi release, contributing to the competitive landscape. The buzz around these movies intensifies the anticipation among fans, despite the looming potential changes.
Dil Raju, a prominent name in the industry, might miss the Sankranthi window this time, signaling the complexities in aligning shooting schedules with festive deadlines. The sentiment echoes the sentiment in the industry—while a Sankranthi release holds immense appeal, the practicality of completing filming within the stipulated time poses a significant challenge.
