April 2018 will be a busy year for Tollywood. Two biggies – Mahesh Babu’s Bharat Ane Nenu and Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya are already battling it out on April 27. The producers are yet to come to a consensus. Adding to this mix is the announcement from Lyca Productions. 2.0 is also set to release in April though the exact date is yet to be announced.
This has left Tollywood producers in a fix. They have posted their views on social media
Bunny Vas who is the producer of Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru surya has posted the below message on Facebook.
Tollywood has always respected and embraced other language cinema. But a bigger project like Robo 2.0 changing their release dates has caused confusion among producers. All the Telugu movie producers who are releasing in the months of April and May are in discussions to avoid any competition among ourselves. However this sudden announcement by ROBO 2 team to release in the month of April has left all the Telugu releases to further confusion. At this juncture we request the trade bodies to take a conscious call and arrive at an amicable solution.

Hopefully all stake holders come to a fair understanding.
