Rakta Charitra 2 Release Postponed

A still from Rakta Charitra 2

After enjoying the success, the first installment of “Rakta Charitra”, Ram Gopal Varma, is set to shock everyone with part two of the film. Apparently, the sequel was set to release on November 19, the maverick director postponed his film to December 3 . But what’s the reason behind this? Anyone can guess?
Well, who would have guessed because of Sanjay’s Guzaarish! You guys are wrong! It is because of Godman Satya Sai Baba and Ram Charan Tej. Yes, you hear it right. Sources close to RGV informed us that since Satya Sai Baba’s birthday falls on November 23 — four days after the release of “RC 2” — RGV decided to postpone the release.
” Rakta Charitra 2″, as the title suggests, is a blood bath that deals with the feud between the families of Paritala Ravi and Maddelacheruvu Suri in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh. Incidentally, Satya Sai Baba’s ashram Prashanti Nilayam at Puttaparthi is also in the same district. To avoid any disturbance to the Baba and his devotees on this day, and offcourse Varma took this decision as he is his one of his devotees. “
When contacted, the co-producer of the film, Raj Kumar did not deny the Ram Charan factor and said,
“Charan’s next is releasing in the same week which will leave us with fewer theatres to release our film. “Magadheera” was a blockbuster, and obviously exhibitors are keen to screen his film. Also the post-production work of “RC 2″ is still in progress. The sum of all these factors forced us to delay the release of our film.”
With RC 2, there are lot of expectations as South Indian super star, Suriya will be making his Bollywood debut with this film.
