The scene in Kollywood is entirely different from what we are witnessing in Tollywood now. This is regarding 2013 movies, box office openings and final collections.
Tollywood has carefully cashed on the Pongal season with two big films ‘Naayak‘ and ‘SVSC’ extracting the max from audiences. But in Kollywood’s case, all big-star films have turned flops till date. Big ticket entertainers like Karthi‘s Alex Pandian, Vishal‘s Samar and Mani Ratnam‘s Kadal have bombed at Box Office. In fact, Tamil heroes are feeling like a crisis with this and are now asking Telugu producers to help them in budget recovery.
Sources revealed that star Tamil heroes approached big Telugu producers to allow them a simultaneous Telugu release of the dubbed version along with Tamil version release.
Only if that happens, they might recover some budgets. Else Telugu distributors are finding the talk of movie after Tamil release and stopping the Telugu release. So let us see what our producers will do.
