Nagarjuna-Anushka starrer Damarukam, which will hit the screens on October 19, is one of the most awaited Telugu movies of 2012. But its release is posing a big threat to Pawan Kalyan's latest movie Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu (CGTR), which is scheduled to grace the screens on October 18. Now, the distributors of the latter film are requesting Damarukam makers to postpone its release.
Cameraman Ganga tho Rambabu is a very big budget movie and it is releasing on 1,600 screens across the country. The theatrical rights of the film have been acquired by a few big distributors for a whopping price. But now, the distributors are afraid of loosing out their investment on Pawan Kalyan's film.
Damarukam will hit the screens just a day after the release of Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu. The distributors feel that Damarukam will surely clash with Pawan's film at the Box Office and affect its collections. Hence, they have apparently requested the producers of Damarukam to avoid the clash by postponing its release.
However, Damarukam is billed as the most expensive film ever in Nagarjuna's career. The film has cutting edge computer graphics of 70 minutes. Some portion of graphics work is reportedly still pending for the film, which has been in the production for the past two years. Now, it should seen whether producer Venkat heed the request of the distributors and push ahead its release date.
