Bunny's Indirect Message To RRR?
Stylish star Allu Arjun is on a high after the huge success of his Sankranti outing 'Ala Vaikunthapurramloo'. He is getting ready for the shoot of his next flick #AA20 in the direction of Sukumar. Mythri Movie Makers is bankrolling the project and they are positioning it for 2021 Sankranti. But the twist to the 2021 Sankranthi releases came in the form of Rajamouli film 'RRR' release date.
It is known that the makers have officially confirmed the release date of 'RRR' as January 8, 2021, a couple of days ago. Usually, two or three biggies fight it out at the Sankranti box office. Considering the scale of 'RRR', no other filmmaker or star is able to release their film during Sankranti because they have to take on the mighty 'RRR'. It is not just Rajamouli factor but there are two big crowd-pulling Tollywood stars in RRR, i.e., Young Tiger NTR and Mega Power Star Ram Charan and that makes 'RRR' much bigger.
Considering these things, there is a widespread opinion among the movie lovers and trade that other filmmakers won't dare to plan their films during 2021 Sankranti. But here is a twist. Stylish Star Allu Arjun is adamant to release his film during 2021 Sankranti as per the reliable information. He doesn't want to listen to the comments that "Allu Arjun also scared of Rajamouli film and pushed his film to a later date" as per the sources close to Bunny. The scenario appears that Allu Arjun wants to convey a strong message that he is not scared of anybody including Rajamouli when it comes to box office fight.
#AA20 director Sukumar is also one of the top directors of Telugu cinema and his last film 'Rangasthalam' was a blockbuster. As a filmmaker, he has all the qualities to compete with Rajamouli. If #AA20 is positioned for Sankranti, the box office fight becomes much more interesting than this year. It is going to be Rajamuli Vs Sukumar and NTR-Charan Vs Allu Arjun. This fight will surely be remembered for a long time and many records will be broken as well. There is a talk in the industry circles that Allu Arjun is doing a good thing by trying to give competition to RRR rather than giving it a solo release.
They are of the opinion that this fight will be beneficial to the industry as the fight will generate more curiosity and collections. We have seen the fight between 'Sarileru Neekevvaru' and 'Ala Vaikunthapurramloo' for this Sankranthi and both the films literally minted money utilizing Sankranti season advantage. We can also witness such a fight for the next Sankranti as well. Let us see what happens.
