The Pongal holiday in the second week of January usually sees big stars blocking dates for the release of their films. However, owing to the pandemic, a backlog of movies has been created and filmmakers have been rushing to block dates for their films. Until a few weeks ago, the Pongal weekend looked crowded with the release of several big films anticipated. However, the makers have now cleared the clutter making space for all films.

SS Rajamouli thanks Mahesh Babu for decluttering the Pongal releases; says Sarkaru Vaari Paata was the perfect Pongal film

On Tuesday, Rajamouli took to his Twitter handle to reveal that it was Mahesh Babu who initiated talks of avoiding a clutter at the box office on Pongal. Mahesh Babu and Keerthy Suresh starrer Sarkaru Vaari Paata was scheduled to release on Pongal, however, the makers later decided to move the release date to summer to avoid a clash. Now, Prabhas’ Radhe Shyam will get a solo release from the Telugu film industry on Pongal weekend. A week before, Rajamouli’s RRR will have its theatrical release.

“@urstrulyMahesh was the one who took the initiative in decluttering the Pongal releases… Even though #SarkaruVaariPaata was a perfect Pongal film, he moved it to summer and created a healthy atmosphere. Thanks to my Hero ???? and also to the entire team at @MythriOfficial,” Rajamouli tweeted.


The filmmaker also thanked the makers of the film F3 starring Varun Tej and Venkatesh Daggubati for postponing the release date of the film. “Also, thanks to Dil Raju garu and the #F3Movie team for shifting the release of their film. Best wishes,” he tweeted.


Pawan Kalyan and Rana Daggubati’s Bheemla Nayak was also supposed to be released on Pongal. However, the makers have pushed the release date to February 25. “The decision by Chinababu garu and Pawan Kalyan garu to defer the release date of #BheemlaNayak is well appreciated. Wishing the team all the very best…,” Rajamouli tweeted.
