Prabhas‘ arriving film “Raja Saab” has generated excitement among fans since its title was announced a few days ago. Similar to his prior big-budget pan-India attempts, the film promises a refreshing difference with its colorful backdrop and Prabhas’ wide appeal. Directed by Maruthi, known for his unique storytelling, the film ventures into the horror genre, adding to the anticipation surrounding its release.
Initially scheduled for a swift production to accommodate Prabhas’ other commitments like “Adipurush,” “Salaar,” and “Kalki,” “Raja Saab” encountered unexpected delays. Despite commencing its first schedule in October 2022, significant portions of the movie are yet to be shot, raising concerns about its timely release.
With “Kalki” slated for a May 9th premiere, “Raja Saab” might eye a Dasara release if everything aligns smoothly. However, the possibility of “Kalki” facing postponement due to intricate VFX work could further delay “Raja Saab,” potentially pushing its release to the following year.
The film’s production journey has seen its share of challenges, including reported reshoots and prolonged schedules, surprising both fans and industry insiders. Despite unveiling a captivating first look and title, director Maruthi remains cautious about committing to a definitive release date, leaving audiences eagerly awaiting further updates on “Raja Saab’s” cinematic journey.
