Megastar Chiranjeevi vs Balakrishna box office battle in the offing?
Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna have been two of the top stars of Telugu Cinema from 1983. They had several box office clashes and the recent one is when NBK100 - Gautamiputra Satakarni and Chiru150 - Khaidi No. 150 released for Sankranthi, 2017.
Now, Chiranjeevi is doing a movie with Koratala Siva and NBK is doing a movie with Boyapati Srinu. While both the directors have some issues that are known for many, they never had a box office clash till date.
For this Independence Day or Dussehra, NBK106 vs Chiru152 is said to be a definite and this is due to lack of good release dates, it seems. Both the films are aiming for Independence Day at this moment, as RRR could come for Dussehra. If it shifts to Sankranthi 2021, then Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna films might plan for the date to take 10 days holiday season, advantage.
If Prabhas20 is releasing for Dusshera, then also both films don't want to clash with it. We don't know yet about the release dates of the films, but the speculations about clash are going on in the big circles of Telugu Cinema. Let's wait and watch.
