Kalyan Ram avoids clash with Nani
While Nani's Krishnarjuna Yuddham will stick to the original release date of April 6, the makers of MLA have voluntarily agreed to move their release to another date
After Bharath Ane Nenu producer DVV Danayya called a truce with the producers of Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya over ambiguity in the release date, the makers of Kalyan Ram’s MLA (Manchi Lakshanalunna Abbayi) and Nani’s Krishnarjuna Yuddham too employed a similar strategy. Initially, both the films had blocked the same date (April 6) for release. But upon sensing the trouble of getting enough screens for both films, they have decided to avert the face-off at the box office. It is learnt that Kalyan Ram has agreed to release his film on a different date.
“Kalyan Ram has voluntarily initiated talks with the makers of Nani’s film and agreed to release his film on another date. Both parties decided to not ruin their prospects and came to a conclusion. Right now MLA is scheduled for release in May, but they are yet to zero in on the exact date. Nani’s film, meanwhile, will be released as planned,” says a source.
However, MLA producers have also not ruled out the possibility of advancing the release. “If Bharath Ane Nenu doesn’t release on April 13, MLA will occupy that slot,” the source adds.
Krishnarjuna Yuddham, being directed by Merlapaka Gandhi, is nearing completion, while MLA, which marks the directorial debut of Upendra Madhav, is in its last leg of shooting.
