S.S. Rajamouli's much-awaited period action film Rise Roar Revolt (RRR) will now make its debut in theatres on March 18, the makers announced on Friday.

In a statement, posted on the film's official Twitter handle, the makers said they have also booked the April 28 date in case the movie gets postponed once again.

"If the pandemic situation in the country gets better and all theatres open up to operate at full capacity, we are ready to release on 18th March 2022. Otherwise, RRR Movie will release on 28th April 2022," the team said.

The Telugu-language film headlined by south stars Ram Charan and N.T. Rama Rao Jr., is produced by DVV Entertainments.

Earlier in the beginning of 2022, the makers had announced the decision to defer the release of the magnum opus six days ahead of the arrival of RRR in cinema halls after a surge in coronavirus cases across the country.

The team had even kickstarted the grand promotional activities which were being carried out across India.

RRR has been postponed multiple times due to the coronavirus pandemic since 2020.

Also featuring Bollywood stars Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt in pivotal roles, RRR is a fictional tale based on the lives of two freedom fighters in the early 20th century —Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Kumram Bheem (NTR Jr).
