The makers of Prabhas' Saaho and Chiranjeevi's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy are reportedly considering August 15 for their theatrical release, but one of them is going to be out of the race.
Post the release of Khaidi No 150, Chiranjeevi took a long time to choose a proper subject for his 151st movie Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, which went on floors December 2017. It is a big budget movie features an ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapati Babu, Nayanthara, Tamannaah, Sudeep, and Brahmaji.
Chiranjeevi is currently busy shooting for Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and he is said to putting extra efforts to wrap up it's shooting by the end of May 2019. Ever since it was launched, the fans of the mega family have been waiting to know about its release date. The latest we hear is that Ram Charan, who is bankrolling it under his banner Konidella Production Compay, has plans to release it on August 15.
It is well-known that Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a historical war drama that is about a freedom fighter. The producer thinks that the movie perfectly suits the sentiment of the Independence Day. "The film is about freedom fighter Narasimha Reddy, so Chiru thought that it would be good to release the film at that time," Deccan Chronicle quoted a source.
On the other hand, Saaho is another most awaited movie as it happens to be the next film of Prabhas after the release of Baahubali 2. Its teaser named Shapes of Saaho, which hit recently the internet, has doubled the curiosity of his fans, who are desperate to know its release date.
It is rumoured that the makers of Saaho are also considering on the same date – August 15 for its release. But they are not interested in a clash with Sye Raa. "But they don't want to compete with Chiru, though they will be able to complete the film. If Chiru announces August 15 as his release date, Prabhas would then adjust his film's release date before or after it," a source told DC.
Both Sahoo and Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy are mega-budget movies and will be released in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. The stakes are really high on them. Moreover, both of them have lot VFX works and they need a lot of time for completion Whichever among the completes first will get the coveted date.
