Ram Charan's Game Changer release postponed

Ram Charan Tej’s Game Changer, which marks his maiden collaboration with filmmaker S Shankar, is turning out to be the most delayed project of his career.

Ever since the film has gone on floors, there have been a series of setbacks; it looks like this is continuing for team Game changer as its release date — scheduled for October — is further deferred by a few more months.

While the makers are yet to officially confirm the postponement, a reliable source close to the team has confirmed the delay.

“After multiple postponements, the film was finally scheduled for release this October. However, due to the postponement of the Indian 2 release to July, Game Changer has been further pushed,” the source said.

The makers are hopeful to release it in December.

“Otherwise, they’ll lock in the Sankranti date in 2025 as it happens to be a big festival slot,” the source added.

Tipped to be a political thriller, Game Changer is said to feature Ram Charan in the role of an IAS officer with serious anger issues.

Interestingly, the actor will be seen playing dual roles as father and son.

Game Changer has music by SS Thaman.

It also stars Kiara Advani, Anjali, Samuthirakani, SJ Suryah, Srikanth, Sunil, and Naveen Chandra.

Other projects of Ram Charan

Meanwhile, Ram Charan will soon commence work on his next project with director Buchi Babu Sana.

Tentatively titled RC16, which was recently launched, will have music by AR Rahman.

It also casts Janhvi Kapoor, marking her second Telugu outing after Devara.

Ram Charan was last seen on screen in SS Rajamouli’s RRR (2022) alongside Jr NTR.

After the phenomenal success of RRR and his global recognition, Ram Charan dropped a hint about his Hollywood debut and the kind of films he wanted to do in the future at the G20 Summit last year.

“I want to explore India more and I don’t think I would want to travel anywhere else for my films unless the producer or director is from Hollywood,” he said.

But, the actor wants to stick to his culture.

Ram Charan added, “I want to educate you that our Indian sentiments are so strong. Our culture is so strong. There’s a lot of dignity in our stories. Nowadays, when you see it, it’s not a South Indian or North Indian movie, it’s about Indian ‘mitti ka stories’. These stories are finally coming out.”
