Tollywood: Films to look out for in 2019!

The Telugu distributors of Rajinikanth’s Petta are worried. 

The Rajinikanth starrer is not getting a good number of screens in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana as the major number of screens are occupied by three biggies— NTR Kathanayakudu starring Balakrishna, Vinaya Vidheya Rama featuring Ram Charan and the multi-starrer F2 – Fun and Frustration featuring Venkatesh and Varun Tej in the lead roles.

Despite the strong word from the local Tollywood trade suggesting to release the film on January 26, Sun Pictures went ahead and announced that even the Telugu version will be releasing on January 10.

The Telugu distributors of Petta lamented at the pre-release event that influential films families who are releasing their films on Sankranthi are not allowing theater owners to give proper screens for Petta. Apart from the Tamil and Telugu, Petta is also releasing in Hindi on January 10.
