Given that Sukumar’s Allu and Rashmika Mandanna-starrer Pushpa 2: The Rule is also scheduled for release on the same day, fans wondered if rumours of the film’s postponement were true. One commented, “#Pushpa2 postpone chestharu emo! (Maybe they’ll postpone Pushpa 2)” Another wrote, “Inka #Pushpa2TheRule postpone pakka. (For sure they’re postponing Pushpa 2 then)” A disappointed fan wrote, “What about Pushpa 2? Postponed again??” The makers are yet to address these rumours or re-confirm the release date.
