26 April 2018. This date is causing a lot of trouble in Tollywood at present. Mahesh Babu’s Bharath Ane Nenu and Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya have announced this date as their release dates. It would be foolish on part of the producers to clash on the same day as collections would be divided. Ideally, such big movies should maintain a week's gap at least.
Although Dil Raju (who is close to both Mahesh Babu and Allu Arjun and also distributing Bharath Ane Nenu in Nizam area) is trying hard to convince either of them change the date, the two heroes have taken it as a prestige issue.
Mahesh Babu doesn’t want to move the film to May. Allu Arjun is ready to move his film to April 20 but he wants Mahesh’s Babu movie to go for another date. He says Mahesh should not release the movie on April 26. If Mahesh sticks to the same date and Allu Arjun’s film goes for another date, people will say that Bunny buckled under pressure.
The egos of these stars have become a headache for the people who are trying to sort out the issue.
