On December 21st we have Nani’s Middle Class Abbayi aka MCA hitting cinemas and on 22nd Akhil’s Hello is releasing in theatres. What is to be seen here is, both the parties are claiming the same thing about the release date. And both have a wish.
Speaking with the press today, MCA producer Dil Raju stated that they have announced December 21st as release date way back in August only. “We have actually announced in August that 21st is our date and later felt like pushing the release to 15th. But as that didn’t happen, we’re sticking to the original plan” he said.
Other day Nagarjuna also claimed the same thing, saying, “We’ve announced the releaese date in September only and most of the time I stick to December only. So what can I do to the release date?”.
Anyway, both the producers felt that box office is able to accommodate both the films as Christmas holidays are also coming. Nagarjuna said, “For festivals, nearly five films are releasing. So now, it’s not tough if two films arrive. Nani is a proven hero and he will have his share”.
Responding to the same query, Dil Raju added, “For Sankranthi, we have seen my Satamanam Bhavati, Khaidi No 150 and Balayya’s film doing well and collecting well. So this Christmas also, both Nani and Akhil’s movies will rock. Audiences will give us blockbuster”
Featuring Nani, Sai Pallavi and Bhumika in the leads, MCA is directed by Venu Sriram of Oh My Friend fame. Akhil’s Hello has newcomer Kalyani debuting as heroine and it is carved by Vikram K Kumar.
