Original Release Plans and Changes

Originally, “Lucky Baskhar” was set to premiere on September 27, alongside Sujeeth’s Pawan Kalyan-starrer “They Call Him OG.” However, due to delays in wrapping up “They Call Him OG,” caused by Pawan Kalyan’s political engagements, the release of “Lucky Baskhar” has been advanced. This move is expected to benefit the film by avoiding a direct clash at the box office.

The teaser hints at a significant turning point when Baskhar stumbles upon a large sum of money, raising curiosity about how he acquired it. Meenakshi Chaudhary plays the role of the woman Baskhar loves, adding a romantic angle to the story.
