Tollywood stands divided on ‘Waltair Veerayya’, ‘Veera Simha Reddy’, And ‘Vaarasudu’ clash

Tollywood is gearing up for a major box office clash during the festive season of Sankranti. In 2023, big-budget movies including megastar Chiranjeevi’s Waltair Veerayya will lock horns with NBK’s Veera Simha Reddy. Apart from these two, Thalapathy Vijay’s Telugu dubbed movie Vaarasudu backed by Dil Raju will also hit the theatres on Sankranti. Reportedly Ajith Kumar's 'Thunivu' and Santosh Shobhan's movie is also aiming at a Sankranti release. Grapevine has it that both films will jointly hold 350 screens. There is a lot of uncertainty regarding the films scheduled to release during the festive season. 

Now the Telugu Film Chamber Of Commerce in an emergency meeting held today (December 6), reiterated that all exhibitors should give first preference to ‘only’ Telugu films during Sankranthi & Dussehra.

Earlier also the Telugu Film Producers Council (TFPC) took a dig at Dil Raju and released a Press Statement about the ongoing controversy. The Council reminded Dil Raju about the rules set in the EC meeting in 2017 that straight films should be given first priority over dubbing films during Sankranthi and Dasara. 

The ace producer reacted to the controversy prior to the latest notice and 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.”

 It would be interesting to see Dil Raju’s reaction to the latest notice. Also, legendary Tollywood producers Allu Aravind and Ashwini Dutt have openly supported Dil Raju in the ongoing feud. Telugu film industry stands divided on Sankranti releases.
