During the pre-release event of Sarileru Neekevvaru, Megastar Chiranjeevi threw a challenge to his director Koratala Siva about completing Acharya in less than 100 working days. Koratala Siva also agreed to the same and promised Chiranjeevi that he will take only 99 days to finish the film.
Cut to the present, Koratala tried his best to finish the film in less number of days. Even before he reached his deadline, the lock down period came into the implementation, resulting in the delay of the film's shoot. The film's delay is resulting in changing a lot of dynamics regarding the movie. From production to marketing, a lot of things will have to change now.
In the view of the same, the reports reveal that Chiranjeevi asked Koratala not to hurry and take his time in finishing the movie. Chiranjeevi also hinted at postponing the film if needed.
