2014 has been particularly bad for the big Telugu movies with many fizzling out at the box office. Now the movie lovers waiting for Shankar’s “I’, originally slated for Diwali but missed the date due to heavy post production work involved with CG work, may have a Christamas (25th December) release as per the sources.
Meanwhile, the most awaited film of the year Aamir’s PK confirmed to hit screens on 19th December. Bollywood films work differently than South film in terms of locking their release dates much ahead and PK will be out 19th as scheduled.
Now the interesting question is if Shankar’s “I” will be out on 25th December, who is going to take the loss due this clash at BO? ‘I’ may find a screen crunch as Aamir’s film will have huge release in northern circuits as well as in overseas. At the same time ‘PK’ may not find decent number of screens in Tamilnadu, Telangana and AP as Shankar ‘I’ will take over the market.
There are big expectations on both films and we need to wait a little longer to find out if ‘I’ will make it for Christmas and takes the lead over Aamir’s ‘PK’.
