Numerous Telugu productions, such as S S Rajamouli’s RRR, Sukumar’s Pushpa, and Buchi Babu Sana’s Upenna, achieved significant recognition at the prestigious national awards. The forthcoming week also promises excitement for aficionados of Telugu cinema, as indications point toward potential announcements regarding several highly anticipated films within the week.
The horizon holds promise for substantial cinematic updates within the realm of Telugu film.
Nagarjuna stands on the brink of reaching a significant milestone with just two more films required to mark his 100th cinematic endeavor. Speculation surrounding his 99th film has been circulating for a while, with reports suggesting that the film’s official title will be unveiled on August 29, this very week. The tentative title for Nagarjuna’s latest work is ‘Nag99.‘ Recent reports also hinted at the possibility of Nagarjuna’s involvement in the Telugu adaptation of the Malayalam film, Porinju Mariam Jose.
Meanwhile, Nandamuri Balakrishna is gearing up for the release of his latest comedic action film, “Bhagavanth Kesari,” under the direction of Anil Ravipudi. The movie, which introduces Kajal Aggarwal, Sreeleela, and Arjun Rampal in their Telugu debut, will face competition from other significant releases at the box office. To build anticipation ahead of its October release, the film’s team aims to generate buzz. The initial song from “Bhagavanth Kesari” is anticipated to debut this week, reportedly on September 1.
Furthermore, Pawan Kalyan is embarking on a collaboration with Sujeeth, known for his work on “Saaho,” for a project titled “OG.” As per reports, the teaser for this period-action thriller is set to make its debut this week. The film stars Priyanka Mohan as the lead female protagonist. On another note, expectations are high for the release of the trailer for “Salaar: Part 1 Ceasefire” in September. This week might witness the unveiling of the trailer for the film, which features Prabhas, Shruti Haasan, Prithviraj Sukumaran, and Jagapathi Babu.
Adding to the intrigue of the week is the anticipated official announcement of the release date for “Pushpa 2: The Rule.” With Allu Arjun recently honored with the National Film Award for Best Actor, excitement surrounding the film directed by Sukumar has reached its pinnacle. Notably, the trailer for “Jawan” is also scheduled for release this week. While the film is not strictly Telugu or South Indian, the presence of leading names from Tamil cinema in this Shah Rukh Khan starrer has stirred anticipation among Indian film enthusiasts.
