Andhra Pradesh Government seems to be hellbent about haunting Pawan Kalyan and his films. No amount of appeasing by Chiranjeevi or any other star can move YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. The Government did not allow 100% occupancy in theaters despite all the other states in South India allowing it.
Sources say that the ticket prices hike G.O. will come out only in the first week of March. The 100% occupancy may be allowed from the next week. Both these decisions are timed to prevent Pawan Kalyan’s Bheemla Nayak coming on February 25th.
Bheemla Nayak makers are not risking the start of the promotions since this is only an unofficial buzz about 100% occupancy and the Government can change its decision at any time. The 100% occupancy may be allowed in such a way that there is no time for Bheemla Nayak promotions.
If February 25th is lost, Bheemla Nayak may have to arrive on April 1st. That means one week after the release of Rajamouli’s RRR which will not help Bheemla in anyways. Such a short gap will bring many problems in business, hype, media space, etc.
“The idea is to scare producers from making films with Pawan Kalyan. Just imagine the uncertainty in the film release irrespective of the product they have. Again stakes will be high because of the huge budgets involved. It’s like Pawan Kalyan’s Star Power Vs Jagan’s Political Power,” a source told us.
It looks like Bheemla Nayak is out of the race and the teams of Aadavallu Meeku Joharlu and Varun Tej’s Ghani are coming on February 25th.
