Of course, producer Bandla Ganesh has wanted it that way. As NTR hasn't returned to the shooting, for the now, this action bonanza is out of Sankranthi's fray. Almost 16 days of shooting is pending for the movie, but Jr NTR is likely to join the shoot only after a week more due to his brother Janakiram's death.
Though Tarak has green signal for the shoot, family issues have pulled the hero back from taking part in the shooting, a birdie said. Both Puri Jagan and Ganesh have thought of making it to the bright Sankranthi season but the delay in shoot will not allow them to race against time and hit screens on time. The scheduled shoot at Alumiminum factory hasn't yet started. In that case, January 9 is a mirage, as confusion looms over the release.
