Top producer speaks on ‘Vaarasudu’, ‘Waltair Veerayya’ and ‘Veera Simha Reddy’ box office clash

Ace Tollywood producer Dil Raju is facing a massive backlash for releasing Vijay’s dubbed Telugu film Vaarasudu in Sankranti alongside movies of leading Telugu actors including Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Waltair Veerayya and Balayya’s Veera Simha Reddy. Now, the producer has opened up for the first time on the ongoing controversy.

In the popular chat show, Open Heart With RK, Dil Raju said “In May, we were the first to announce that Vaarasudu is releasing for Sankranti, Chiranjeevi Garu's movie date was announced in June & then Balakrishna Garu's movie also announced Sankranti date in October due to various reasons. Had Adipurush not been postponed, we all would've faced issues but now only three films are releasing & Telugu states have enough screens to accommodate three movies during Sankranti.”

He further added, “Mythri Movies and I discussed the release plans already & we are in sync. When Mythri Movies and I have no concerns, then i don't understand why others should have a problem. I have only 37 screens on lease out of the 420 screens in Nizam. Asian Sunil holds 100 screens and other screens are run by the owners themselves. We have a good hold in the distribution circles and the exhibitors normally offer their screens to me on a priority basis based purely on goodwill.  How can they say i have a monopoly with just 37 screens?"

Producers Council has targeted Dil Raju for going back on his words. In 2019 Sankranti, Vinaya Vidheya RamaF2, and Petta were released together. Back then, when fans were demanding to release superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Petta’ in Telugu states, the producer in an interview said, “How can screens be given to a Rajinikanth film when there are already so many Telugu movies releasing?” In another interview, Dil Raju remarked, “We are not in a situation to give screens to other cinemas over Telugu cinema.”
