The release date of Ram Charan's Dhruva, which was slated to hit the screens on December 2, has been postponed due to some reason. Allu Aravind has planned to delay its release by a week.

It was rumoured recently that the makers were considering on postponing the release of Dhruva following the demonetisation. Now, the producers have made announcement about the delay in its release, but they have not revealed the reason for the postponement of the movie.

Vamsi Kaka, the publicist for Dhruva, announced its new release date on his Twitter handle. He tweeted: "Mega Power Star Ram Charan's #Dhruva will be releasing on December 9, 2016."

But a source close to the production team told International Business Times India that the delay of Dhruva is due to demonetisation. "Public is busy with the exchange of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes after demonetisation. The makers understood the current situation and the effects of demonetization on the public. So they decided to release the film on 9 December," the source told IBTimes India.

Ram Charan is seen playing a powerful IPS officer in Dhruva, while Rakul Preet Singh appears as his love interest. The mega power star has completed the shoot and dubbing for his portion in the film, which is now in post-production stage. Idlebrain Jeevi tweeted: "#Dhruva release date is postponed from 2 December to 9 December. Ram Charan has completed his dubbing on 17 November."

Dhruva, which is a remake of Tamil film Thani Oruvan, is directed by Surender Reddy and jointly produced by Allu Aravind and NV Prasad under banner Geetha Arts. Arvind Swamy played the negative role in the original and he is playing the same role in its Telugu remake, while Posani Krishna Murali and Nasser essay supporting roles.

Dhruva has Hip Hop Tamizha's music, PS Vinod's cinematography, Nagendra's art direction and Naveen Nooli's editing. Its music has become a hit with the audience and its other promos show that the film has high production values. The makers have decided to have a grand worldwide release on 9 December.
