Producer Manish Shah has called Kartik Aaryan 'extremely unprofessional' after he allegedly threatened to walk out of Shehzada if the Hindi dubbed version of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo (2020) was released in theatres. Shehzada is the Hindi remake of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. 

Recently, the producers of both films jointly decided that the Hindi dub of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo (starring Allu Arjun) will not release in theatres. The release was planned following the success of Allu Arjun's Pushpa in Hindi-speaking territories. 

Manish, who owns the rights to the dub, told a portal that the makers of Shehzada were not keen on the version releasing in cinemas. 

He told IndiaToday.in: "Also, Kartik Aaryan said if the movie was released in theatres, he would walk out of the film, which would have caused Shehzada producers a loss of Rs 40 crore. It was extremely unprofessional of him."

Shehzada is directed by Rohit Dhawan and stars Kartik and Kriti Sanon in the lead. 

This was the statement from Goldmines Telefilms on cancelling the Hindi theatrical release of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. "Manish Shah, promoter of Goldmines along with the makers of Shehzada have jointly decided to withdraw the theatrical release of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo Hindi version. Shehzada makers are thankful to Manish Shah for agreeing to the same."
