About Hanuman Movie:

Hanuman is a Telugu-language superhero film written and directed by Prasanth Varma and produced by Niranjan Reddy Kandagatla under Primeshow Entertainment. It features an ensemble cast of Teja Sajja, Amritha Aiyer, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Raj Deepak Shetty and Vinay Rai. The film is set in the fictional village of Anjanadri and is the first installment of the Prasanth Varma Cinematic Universe followed by Adhira.

After successfully directing Zombie Reddy (2021), Varma announced his fourth film on 29 May 2021, coinciding with his birthday. It was announced that the film will be the first superhero film in Telugu cinema.

Anudeep Dev, Hari Gowra and Krishna Saurabh were hired to compose the music of the film. It is edited by SB Raju Tallari. Teja Sajja joined the production on the launch day of the film, as the lead actor. The name of the fictional village was announced as Anjanadri.

The film was officially launched on 25 June 2021 in Hyderabad, with a pooja ceremony and muhurtam shot done.

Principal photography of the film was also on the same day. As of August 2021, 40% of filming was completed. Filming of few action sequences and songs took place at Maredumilli and Paderu of Andhra Pradesh in September 2021.

During the teaser launch event held in Hyderabad in November 2022, Varma revealed that the production budget increased six times from the initial valuation.

The film was theatrically released on 12 January 2024 in Telugu, along with dubbed versions of Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi, Marathi, English, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese.

In February 2022, Eenadu reported that the non-theatrical rights (which includes satellite and post-theatrical digital streaming) of the film’s Telugu and Hindi versions were sold to ZEE5 and Zee Network at a cost of ₹16 crore (US$2.0 million).

A sequel, titled Jai HanuMan, was announced in the end credits of the film. It was revealed that Hanuman’s character would have more prominence than Teja Sajja’s character in the film. This film is the first film in a future shared universe of superhero films created by Prasanth Varma, based on Hindu mythology with Adhira (TBA) going to be the second installment.
