'Thunivu' To Lose Out In The Sankranti Race?

Ajith’s upcoming film ‘Thunivu’ may not have sufficient theatres in the Telugu states

Ajith Kumar’s ‘Thunivu’ and Thalapathy Vijay’s ‘Varisu’ (Vaarasudu in Telugu) have been locked in a battle to secure theatres in the Telugu states. With four star-led films set for release over the Sankranti weekend, filmmakers of the respective releases are worried about not having enough theatres. Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Veera Simha Reddy and Chiranjeevi’s  Waltair Veerayya have the home turf advantage when securing screens whereas Vijay's film is produced by Dil Raju who controls the majority of theatres leaving Ajith's film to battle it out. 

The latest news suggests that Ajith’s ‘Thunivu’ might be losing the race. Although the distribution rights for the film have been bought for 3 crores, the film might not have enough screens because Dil Raju wants to ensure a sizable chunk of the theatres are allotted to his film. He is a renowned producer and distributor in the Telugu states and also the producer for Thalapathy Vijay’s ‘Vaarasudu’. Moreover, the dubbed title for ‘Thunivu’ is yet to be finalised while the ‘Vaarasudu’ team promotes the film in Telugu. Rumours suggest the Telugu title for Ajith’s film is ‘Thegimpu’.

‘Thunivu’, with limited screens, will be forced to depend on good word-of-mouth. While the other three big releases will open to larger box-office numbers. The Thala Ajith-starrer, which is slated for release on January 11, could still break even if it remains in theatres for longer.
