In addition, from April 14 to 17, the government has relaxed its prior restrictions, allowing five screenings of "KGF: Chapter 2" to be screened between 7 a.m. and 1 a.m.

In Hyderabad, the film will be released in Hindi and Telugu. The first film, "KGF: Chapter 1," was screened at PVR theatres around the city for five days before its premiere. The film was supposed to be released in January; however, it was postponed owing to the Omicron variant's case surge.

Last month, KGF producers announced the debut of "KGFverse," a metaverse where anyone may build their avatars and virtually explore the universe of the film. This was first released on April 7th.

The authorities have already permitted theatres to raise ticket costs for "RRR." It had allowed for a 50-100 rupee hike, depending on the venue and seats. At PVR, an "RRR" ticket cost Rs. 413, and other multiplexes in the city charged up to Rs. 500.
