Ashwini Dutt About Telugu Sankranthi Releases

Ashwini Dutt reacts to the Telugu Producers Council's decision of opposing ‘Varisu’ aka ‘Vaarasudu’

Producer Ashwini Dutt’s filmography as a producer speaks volumes about his contribution to the Telugu Film Industry. Under the banner of Vyjayanthi Movies, the legendary producer has actively contributed to the development of Telugu cinema, which stands tall today as Tollywood. Recently, the Telugu Producers Council released a letter stating that no dubbed movies should be released in theatres during the festive season of Sankranthi. The council’s statement comes at a time when Dil Raju was prepping to release Thalapathy Vijay’s ‘Varisu’ as Vaarasudu in the Telugu states. Addressing the statement, Dutt appealed to the council to retract the statement. 

In an interview with Eenadu, Ashwini Dutt reacted to the statement and said, “By the grace of OTT and dubbed versions, our (Telugu) films have attained success at a brisk pace. In Tamil, our movies have earned good collections. In such a situation, how can we say that we shouldn't prioritise dubbed movies? It's nothing short of suicide for our industry.” 

Referring to the council blocking Vijay’s Vaarasudu’s Sankranthi 2023 release, Dutt remarked, “A Telugu producer and a director collaborated on a project and decided to release it in theatres on Sankranthi. What's wrong with that? On the other hand, another producer (Mythri Movie Makers) is geared up to release two of their movies at the same time? If the problem is about theatre allotment, one can question the producer 'why are you undermining my movie with another?' I oppose the statement passed by the producer's council." Dutt seemingly referred to Mythri Movie Makers, who have two of their films lined up for Sankranthi 2023 release; Megastar Chiranjeevi-starrer Waltair Veerayya and Nandamuri Balakrishna's Veera Simha Reddy.
