Pawan Kalyan‘s highly-anticipated film Katamarayudu will finally hit the theatres on 24th March 2017. The film was initially going to release on 28th March 2017, which is on Telugu New Year but the makers have shifted the screening of the film. Katamarayudu will have a grand pre-release though a week before the film hits the screens at around 18th March 2017. The songs will be launched with any formal audio launch or event. The makers are shooting the final few scenes in Europe along with a couple of songs and will wrap up by 13th March 2017. The teaser of the film received around 5 billion views in just 24 hours on YouTube.
Fans are super excited about this film. In fact, the film is already garnering a lot of money before the release with the overseas distribution rights that have been clinched for a whopping amount of Rs 11.5 crore. Katamarayudu is a remake of Tamil film, Veeram. Pawan Kalyan will be seen in a role he has never played before, a faction leader and Shruti Haasan will be playing his female lead. Shruti is elated to work with Pawan and we can’t wait to see this pair on the big screen.
Shruti and Pawan reunited after Gabbar Singh, a Telugu remake of Dabangg, and the actress said in an interview,” I’ll always be grateful to Pawan Kalyan for giving me an opportunity to be part of the project. A star of his calibre could have easily said no to me. But he was very supportive and I’ll never forget it.” Considering how much buzz the movie has already made, we are certain that it will be soaring high at the box office.
Apart from Katamarayudu, Pawan Kalyan has two other projects that he has already started working on. The actor will be seen playing Ajith’s role in Vedalam, which is another Tamil remake, which will be directed by R T Neason. He has also signed another project with popular director Trivikram Srinivas and will be teaming up with actor Niithin to produce a film.
