Kannappa Movie OTT Release Date, Time, Cast, OTT platform, Trailer, and many more details can be checked in this article. Kannappa is expected to hit theaters on 11 October 2024 tentatively. With the wide spread market for Telugu movies across India, few actors and filmmakers are now taking the risk to expand their boundaries by making movies on a huge budget than they invested in their movies previously. Actor Manchu Vishnu, who started his career with a positive response from the audience, slowly lost his charm and has faced many failures in his career. He hasn’t tasted any success for more than a decade now and has been part of many disasters in all these years. He always said that he had a dream project that needed a lot of budget, and now, finally, he started his dream project.

Actor Manchu Vishnu always wanted to make a film on the life of Lord Shiva devotee “Kannappa,” and he has officially announced this movie in August 2023. Even though the movie was announced with a grand pooja ceremony, the buzz around this big-budget movie was very low, but only after the shoot began did expectations for this movie begin to rise. The movie team has released the first-look poster for this movie on the occasion of Maha Shiva Rathri. To know more details about this upcoming big budget movie in Telugu, read this article completely till the end.

Kannappa Movie OTT Release Date

Kannappa digital rights information is yet to be announced by the makers and the movie is expected to hit screens on 11 October 2024 tentatively. “Kannappa” movie was also a dream project for actor and writer Tanikella Bharani. He announced that he had plans to make this movie with actor Sunil in the lead role and within no time, Manchu Vishnu announced that he was keen to make this movie on a very large canvas and started to work on the script with different writers. As per a few sources, Tanikella Bharani is said to have compromised to make this project and handed over the script to Manchu Vishnu.

Even though both Tanikella Bharani and Manchu Vishnu announced the project “Kannappa” long ago in 2014–15, it took almost ten years for an official announcement on this project.
