Despite the slow business of Chiru's Shankardada Zindabad in his home state, it is being well received in Chennai. The film, which is largely a disappointer in Andhra Pradesh, is running for 21 shows a day in the 2 theatres that are screening the movie. A special screening was organized for the press and film personalities today. The response to the film from the attendees was positive.
The orignal version of the film Lage Raho Munnabhai just celebrated its 100th day of running- also in two theatres. Shankardada Zindabad was released in the 27th of July and is at present is running with packed shows.
The megastar is attempting to make the films release in his home state of Andhra Pradesh a success. The media has reported that the film is a failure – that it is a pure and plain remake with no innovation is their complaint. His supporters have been saying that certain political forces are trying to put the actor down. They claim that these forces are preventing him from entering politics.
