Tamil Nadu is not a good market place for Telugu movies, but Tamil films have obviously got great demand in Andhra Pradesh. Success of Kamal Hassan, Rajinikanth, Surya, Vikram and Karthi's recent movies in AP Box Office is the clear proof for it. Tamil actor Vijay, whose last release Thuppaki has done well in the state, is now all set to dazzle the screens with his latest movie Anna - Born to Lead, which will have grand release in the state.
Telugu movie Anna - Born to Lead, which is the dubbed version of Vijay's Thalaivaa, was to release in a limited number of screens in the state. But with the postponement of the release of Attarintiki Daredi, the dubbed film is expected to take over a large number of screens, which were reserved for the Pawan Kalyan starrer film.
According to reports, the producers of Attarintiki Daredi had booked more than 1,000 screens in the state. Now, the distributors of Anna are planning to increase the number of the screens for the film. Insiders from the industry claim that they are already in talks with several theatre owners and very soon, they will finalise the deal and come with new theatre list for the dubbed version of Thalaivaa.
Kamal Hassan's recent release Vishwaroopam, which released in record number of screens in the state, has done a fantastic collection at the AP Box Office and set a new collection record. Now, trade analysts from Tollywood feel that Anna will break this record as it has no big local competitor. Continue to read more about Anna in the slideshow.
