Hrithik-Tiger's War giving tough time to Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy
Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is not able to get enough screens to show his movie in Northern Part of India because of a clash in dates.
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is one of the most-awaited releases in India. The movie featuring Chiranjeevi and Amitabh Bachchan in an important role is also dubbed and released in Hindi on October 2.
The problem occurred when the distributors started booking the screens and were not able to get the amount of screen which they wanted in northern part. And the movie has also not create that much of a buzz among fans. It is a biographical epic action film, based on the life of India's first freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy from Rayalaseema.. But it is facing problems in getting enough number of shows and screens in the northern part of India.
Sumit Kadel, a film trade observer tweeted, "Despite AA films full efforts, Exhibitors are refusing to allot even 20-30% screens & shows to #SyeRaaNarasimhaReddy in north/Hindi belt. #WAR is going to release on 4500+ screens in India."
Adding to that Sumit Kadel also tweeted, "They want to cash on national holiday date, cashing with big film also gives publicity. Makers of Sye Ra are not expecting any huge collection in the Hindi belt, they are eying 40-60 cr lifetime biz out here. If the War turns out to be really bad, then the latter might get added boost at BO."
AA Films is distributing Sye Raa with joined hands with Excel Entertainment and they are famous for their fights for screen in the past.
