The Telugu film Industry (TFI) was severely hit due to the pandemic. With the number of people working behind every scene, and on outdoor location requirements, the pandemic pushed the shooting schedules way behind than expected. Few completed projects could breathe a sigh of relief because they had finished shooting, but eventually, they had to release it on OTT platforms. The break, from the first wave of Covid-19, gave space for the Ravi Teja starrer Krack to make the best use of theatres rolling back. Now, the Telugu Film Industry is a lot wiser and wants to seize every opportunity to make the best use of theatrical releases. Four Telugu stars have lined up their highly anticipated movies for the Sankranti 2022 release. Here are four Tollywood films that have officially set Sankranti 2022 as their tentative release dates.
#1 Radhe Shyam

Actress Bhagyashree is playing a crucial role in the film. Radhe Shyam is being produced by UV Creations and T-Series jointly and is being shot in Telugu and Hindi simultaneously. It was recently announced to have been shifted to a Sankranti 2022 release.
