Next in the list of movies to be hit by the demonetisation drive is Vishal’s action flick Okkadochadu as the filmmakers have postponed the release date of the film to December. “Due to ongoing situation in the country, Okkadochadu has been postponed. We are planning to release the movie in December,” said producer G Hari.

Okkadochadu was initially slated to release in October but was again rescheduled for November 18. Though the film has wrapped its shooting and music of the film has also been announced, the severe cash crunch among the audience forced makers to wait till December for its release.

The producers are also not taking any risk as the movie was said to be made on a hefty budget. The makers have said that songs and action sequences have been picturised very lavishly, noting that the movie will be the “costliest movie in Vishal’s career”. The movie reportedly had shot just a big chase sequence on a budget of Rs 1.5 crore.

While Vishal and Tamannaah Bhatia are playing the lead roles in the film, the mass actioner also features Tollywood actor Jagapati Babu playing a baddie. Okkadochadu has also roped in Sampath Raj, Charan and Jaya Prakash in crucial roles. The movie will also be released as Kaththi Sandai in Tamil.
