With the alarming rise in the number of COVID-19 cases across India, the makers of the Telugu period drama Virata Parvam have postponed the movie's release date. Featuring Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi in lead roles, the film was scheduled for a worldwide release on 30 April. Meanwhile, the new release date is yet to be announced.

Virata Parvam is set in the rural Telangana of the 1990s and revolves around a Maoist theme. The film is directed by Venu Udugula and it features Priyamani, Nivetha Pethuraj, Nandita Das, and Naveen Chandra in other important roles.
