Telugu superstar Prabhas, who became a national phenomenon after the riotous success of his films Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017), was gearing up to release his next film, tentatively titled Jaan, on Makar Sankranti in January 2021.

However, with the US schedule of the much-anticipated film coming to a halt in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, it is not possible for the makers to wrap up the movie on time and release it on Makar Sankranti 2021. As things stand at the moment, it seems highly impossible to meet the release deadline.

The delay in the shooting of Jaan is going to affect his next film as well. The actor recently signed on to headline filmmaker Nag Ashwin’s next directorial offering. Set to be made in Hindi and Telugu, the movie was supposed to go before cameras in late 2020. But due to the Coronavirus outbreak and stoppage of all production activities, the shooting schedule of almost all films across industries is going to suffer and Prabhas’ next is not an exception.

“Prabhas will first finish shooting Jaan and then move on to Nag Ashwin’s film. There is a long incomplete schedule of Jaan to be finished in the US before Prabhas moves on to his next. The location of the US schedule cannot be shifted for reasons of continuity. As things stand at the moment, Jaan will now release towards the middle of 2021 and Nag Ashwin’s film in 2022,” a source close to the development tells a publication.

Prabhas was last seen in the multilingual action entertainer Saaho (2019). Also starring Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh in key characters, the Sujeeth directorial received poor critical response from critics but went on to do exceptional business at the ticket window.
