Highly-anticipated Telugu movie Vikramasimha, which is the dubbed version of Superstar Rajinikanth's Tamil film Kochadaiiyaan, is finally set to dazzle the screens across Telangana and Seemandhra this Friday. This flick has been postponed for several times due to delay in the technical works. The Telugu version of Kochadaiiyaan is scheduled to release in a record number of screens in these states on May 9, 2014.
Kochadaiiyaan is a mega-budget movie, which has been made with Rs 125 crores. Apart from Tamil, the film is simultaneously releasing in several languages like Hindi, Telugu, Japanese, Bhojpuri, Bengali, Marathi, Punjabi and English in theatres across the world on the same day. If we are to go by the latest reports, the movie will grace more than 6000 screens, which is a record amount of screen for an Indian cinema.
Hyderabad-based production and distribution house Lakshmy Ganpathy Films has bought the theatrical rights for the film Vikramasimha for a whopping price in March 2013. The music and trailers of the movie, which were released in two different grand events a few weeks ago, have received very good response from the film goers, who are now desperately waiting to watch Rajini Saar dazzle the screens.
Rajinkanth has huge fan following in both Telangana and Seemandhra regions. Considering the viewers' curiosity and expectations for his latest outing Vikramasimha, the bosses of Lakshmy Ganpathy Films have reportedly made grand plans for its release. It is said that they want to release in 1200 cinema halls in these states with maxim number of screens in Nizam area.
The bosses of Lakshmy Ganpathy Films are said to have already booked nearly 450 screens for Vikramasimha in Telangana and Seemandhra regions and they are still making efforts to book another 750 theatres. If they are successful in bagging 1200 screens in these state, this is truly going to be a record in the Telugu film industry. Another interesting fact is that this record will be set by a dubbed movie.
Power Star Pawan Kalyan is considered as the No 1 Tollywood actor and his Blockbuster movie Attarintiki Daredi, which has become the highest grosser Telugu movie of all time, was released in 1000+ screens in Telangana and Seemandhra regions. If Vikramasimha releases in 1200 screens in the states, it will break the record of Attarintiki Daredi. It should be seen whether the distributors will be successful in their attempts.
