Rajinikanth Petta Causes Fight between Producers Dil Raju and Ashok Vallabhaneni
Petta Telugu distributor Ashok Vallabhaneni has got a clash with Tollywood producers Dil Raju, Allu Aravind and UV Creations for the same.
In his speech, Ashok remarked them as ‘theater mafia’. “UV Creations, Allu Aravind and Dil Raju behave as if they were born with theaters. Why are they so afraid to give theaters? If a film is good, the audience will support it. How fair is it to release just one film in hundreds of theaters, while denying screens to good films?” said Ashok.
Other Petta’s Telugu distributor Prasanna in his speech said, “If a film is good, nobody can stop it. Today the situation is so grave that three or four people are keeping all theaters for their own films. During Pongal, we have enough audience to watch even six or seven movies. But theater mafia is only allowing one or two films in every area.” Ashok Vallabhaneni and Prasanna Kumar spoke about the same at the pre-release event of Petta.
Ace producer Dil Raju said, “The release date for NTR biopic, Vinaya Vidheya Rama and F2 were announced six months ago. The producers of these three movies and distributors have been struggling to find screens. But, the release date of Petta was announced about a month ago. When we have three big original Telugu films releasing here, how is it possible to allot theaters for a film from the neighbouring state. Earlier, the same producers released Nawab and Sarkar (Telugu version). They released Sarkar in both the Telugu states according to their requirements and now they are making unnecessary statements. We have a situation of allotting no theaters to non-Telugu films for this (festival) season. Last year, I faced losses in film distribution. But I am still doing this because of my passion for movies.”
