Gaanja Shankar Movie OTT Release Date

Gaanja Shankar digital rights information is yet to be confirmed by the movie team and movie is expected to hit the screens on 29 March 2024 tentatively. Sampath Nandi received many offers after the success of “Rachcha” with Ram Charan, but he decided to turn into a producer and made a movie titled “Galipatam,” starring Aadi Saikumar in the lead role. Sampath Nandi, after the success of “Rachcha,” took a gap of 3 years and announced his next movie, “Bengal Tiger,” with actor Ravi Teja in the lead role. Even though this movie received a good response from the mass audience in Telugu states, it failed to meet the investments made in it, making it an average box-office movie.

Later, Sampath Nandi came up with “Goutham Nanda,” starring Gopichand in the lead role, which was also an average movie at the box office but was later praised as an underrated movie in the career of Gopichand and Sampath Nandi. He last directed the movie “Seetimaar,” which starred Gopichand and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead roles and is also considered an average movie. Sampath Nandi now definitely needs a good hit with “Gaanja Shankar” to grab more opportunities in Telugu to direct big stars once again. Even though the “Gaanja Shankar” movie has been announced, they haven’t announced the release date of the movie either in theatres or on OTT platforms.

Actor Sai Dharam Tej has suffered a deadly accident and has been away from the movies for almost a year. His comeback movie “Virupaksha” became a blockbuster, but another movie, “Bro,” alongside Pawan Kalyan, failed to entertain the audience in theatres. He once again took a break from the movies and accepted the “Gaanja Shankar” script after listening to many scripts. The regular shoot of “Gaanja Shankar” has already started, and the movie team is planning to release the movie in theatres as soon as possible.

Bheems Ceciroleo is composing the music for this movie and he already worked with Sampath Nandi on movies like “Galipatam,” “Paper Boy,” and “Bengal Tiger.” As they worked together on multiple movies, we can expect a good music album, as they will have a good understanding.
