Director Koratala Siva’s highly anticipated Telugu film, “Devara: Part 1,” featuring Jr NTR, Janhvi Kapoor, and Saif Ali Khan, will now hit theaters earlier than planned. Originally slated for release on October 10, the film will now premiere on September 27.

In an interesting turn of events, Vasan Bala’s “Jigra,” starring Alia Bhatt and Vedang Raina, will see a slight delay. Initially scheduled for a September 27 release, “Jigra” will now be released on October 11, just a day after the original release date of “Devara: Part 1.”

Alia Bhatt and Jr. NTR, who previously worked together in the blockbuster “RRR,” share a deep bond of friendship and professional respect. The decision to swap the release dates of “Devara” and “Jigra” was reached amicably, reflecting the maturity and understanding between the teams involved. Such decisions are common in the industry, where the release calendar can be highly competitive, and strategic scheduling can significantly impact a film’s box office performance. By swapping release dates, the teams behind “Devara” and “Jigra” have demonstrated a keen sense of strategic planning, ensuring both films have the best chance to succeed without clashing.

Interestingly, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions is a common factor between both films.

“Devara” and “Jigra” have generated significant anticipation among audiences, each boasting a unique storyline and stellar cast. “Devara,” featuring Jr NTR, promises to be a gripping narrative showcasing his acting prowess and versatility. Meanwhile, “Jigra,” starring Alia Bhatt and Vedang Raina, is expected to be a compelling drama highlighting Bhatt’s exceptional talent and ability to portray complex characters. The decision to swap release dates ensures fans of both stars can look forward to enjoying these films without the distraction of a box office clash.
