With big-ticket movies like ‘RRR’, ‘Bheemla Nayak’, ‘Radhe Shyam’ in the race during Sankranti season, the traders of Tollywood are demented about a few things.
Andhra Pradesh’s ticket prices issue on one hand and the big competition among the biggies, on the other hand, have become a headache for the producers, distributors, theatre owners, and other movie traders.
Ram Charan and NTR-starrer ‘RRR’, Prabhas and Pooja Hegde-starrer ‘Radhe Shyam’, Pawan Kalyan, Rana Daggubati-starrer ‘Bheemla Nayak’ and one more biggie are on the list of the movies which are set to hit the screens during Sankranti.
With all the biggies in this competition, there is no possibility of theatres being available for all the movies in the Telugu states. And, if negative talk crawl out about any of these movies after the release, the distributors will face huge losses and will have to give away theatres. Keeping all the factors in mind, the big shots of the industry have arranged a meeting to discuss resolutions.
It is reported that there would be major changes in the release dates of the above-listed movies, along with other business-related resolutions. Makers of Mahesh Babu’s ‘Sarkaru Vaari Paata’ realised the risk factors earlier, and hence averted the box-office clash, postponing the movie to April 1.
