Megastar Chiranjeevi was supposed to have joined the sets of Acharya during the first of second week of November. However, this got postponed because he was misdiagnosed as positive for Coronavirus. With the news that he’s negative coming out later, he was expected to start shooting from the last week of November.
However, according to the latest reports, Chiranjeevi would not be joining the sets of Acharya until after Sankranthi. This is because the intensity of the spreading of Coronavirus has not reduced any bit. This is why Chiranjeevi does not want to take a risk, and wants to put the shooting on hold.
As a result, Acharya is now out of Summer 2021 race, and may release for Dussehra, if everything goes well. Koratala Siva was reportedly very much looking forward to resuming shooting for the film, but his plans have now been watered down once again.
