“It is not feasible to have only straight Telugu releases for big festivals,” says Allu Aravind 

Recently, the Telugu Film Producer’s Council has issued a notice to theatre owners to prioritise the release of only straight Telugu films during big festivals like Dasara and Sankranti. “Keeping in view of the increased cost of production of Telugu films, the welfare of Producers, and to save the Telugu Film Industry, the Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce has passed a resolution that only Telugu straight films should be given preference during the festivals of Sankranti and Dassera (sic),” stated the press release. 

The release added, “In this connection, noted Producer and the present Vice-president of Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce, Sri Dil Raju, has categorically informed to media in the year 2019 stating that how can we give theatres to dubbed Telugu movies during the festivals and therefore the first preference shall be given to straight Telugu films for screening in theatres and the remaining will be given to dubbed Telugu films during the festivals (sic).” 

Back in 2019 when Sankranti had seen four releases — NTR Kathanayakudu, Vinaya Vidheya Ram, and Dil Raju’s F2, along with Rajinikanth’s Petta, a Telugu-dubbed film — Dil Raju spoke out against dubbed films being released during important festival seasons and stated that straight Telugu films should out-number dubbed films to keep the Telugu film industry afloat. The producer had allegedly not provided ‘Petta’ with many theatres in the Telugu States. 

Now, ironically, it is Dil Raju who finds himself at the centre of a storm since the Telugu dubbed version of his Tamil film Varisu (Vaarasudu in Telugu) is releasing for Sankranti.  

The Tamil Nadu producers have reportedly expressed their ire at this decision of the Telugu Producers Council. Since there are no restrictions to the release of Telugu films in Tamil Nadu, they expect reciprocal treatment for their films in the two Telugu States. 

Meanwhile, producer Allu Aravind has waded in on the controversy and said cinema should have no restrictions or boundaries. Responding to the decision of the Producers Council, he said it wasn’t feasible to have only straight Telugu releases for big festivals.
