Tollywood producers received a jolt when Lyca Productions announced the release of 2.0 on April 27. Bharat Ane Nenu’s DVV Entertainments and Naa Peru Surya’s Bunny Vas where already in a tussle over the same date.
They had sought intervention from the production council and had given open statements regarding 2.0’s release on social media. However looks like now both producers have decided to vacate the date and avoid clash with 2.0. The main reason seems to unavailability of screens. 2.0 is distributed by Asian cinemas which controls almost 60% of the screens in both Telugu States.
Speculations say that Mahesh Babu’s Bharat Ane Nenu will release two weeks earlier than 2.0 and Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya will release two weeks later on May 11. Official announcement awaited.
