The decision came from the production house of the movie- Sri Venkateshwara creations. The postponement of the film was announced through the official Twitter account of the production house. The Hyderabad-based production team has announced the postponement of the film because they want the audience to experience the 3D format of the film. The production team also wants the audience to indulge and immerse themselves in the world of Shaakuntalam and its world. For this, the #D format will work the best. As the production team wants to release the movie in the 3D format, the already announced release date, which is the 4th of November, has to be canceled for an indefinite period of time.

Sri Venkateshwara creations would be announcing the new release date soon through their social media handles. Shaakuntalam is directed by Gunashekhar. The film Shaakuntalam is based on Kalidas’s play (originally written in Sanskrit by Kalidas) Abhigyan Shaakuntalam. When the poster and teaser were released to the public, the public gave a very positive response. However, looking at the positive response from the public, they (the production house and director) wanted to do something big by bringing the 3D version of the movie with the new release date.

According to an official statement, “We aim to give a bigger experience with Shaakuntalam and immerse you in the world of Shaakuntalam, for which we as a team felt 3D would be a brilliant way. To facilitate this, we would be taking some time to put forth and so, we will be unable to meter the earlier announced date of release…”. The production team thanked the audience for their support. The team will be announcing a new release date soon
