The ongoing shifting of release dates in Tollywood creating trouble similar to last year’s ‘Salaar‘ postponement. This time, NTR‘s ‘Devara,’ which was supposed to be released on April 5th, has been pushed back until September. The causes include the Andhra Pradesh elections, substantial visual effects work, and Saif Ali Khan‘s injuries.
This has fueled speculation of a clash with Ram Charan‘s ‘Game Changer,’ directed by Shankar, aiming for a September release. The festive season advantage in September becomes crucial for ‘Devara,’ especially with ‘Pushpa: The Rule‘ occupying the Independence weekend.
Trade analysts anticipate a potential Mega vs Nandamuri clash, fearing fan wars between Ram Charan and NTR enthusiasts. Despite both heroes sharing screen space previously, a simultaneous release may intensify rivalry. Producers typically avoid releasing two major projects simultaneously, but circumstances might force an inevitable clash.
Maintaining at least a week’s gap is customary, yet the tight schedule poses challenges. ‘Game Changer,’ backed by producer Dil Raju with strong ties to both NTR and Koratala Siva, adds complexity to the situation. As fans eagerly await their respective heroes, the outcome of this potential clash remains uncertain.
