With the coronavirus lockdown, all the shoots are stalled and it is unclear when the situations would calm down. The actors, filmmakers are currently spending time with their families and are eagerly waiting for the lockdown to be lifted. Initial reports say that the shoots of Telugu films may start from June if things come to a normal situation. Chiranjeevi's next film Acharya is initially planned for August release. Koratala Siva is the director and Kajal Aggarwal is the leading lady.
There are talks that RRR would release in summer 2021 instead of January 2021. Hence, the makers of Acharya are in plans to release the film for Sankranthi 2021. Chiranjeevi asked Koratala Siva to work aiming for Sankranthi release for the film. Ram Charan will have a crucial role in this social drama and he will be shooting for a month to complete his part for the film. Konidela Production Company and Matinee Entertainments are the producers.
