Filmmaker Gunasekhar’s most ambitious project Rudhramadevi hit the screens on 9th of this month in all the areas, except in Tamil Nadu. Rudhramadevi is a Telugu, Tamil bilingual. But, Tamil version’s release has been delayed owing to some reasons. Unavailability of theaters is prime cause for the postponement. Vijay’s Puli occupied most of the theaters in the neighboring state then.
Now, Rudhramadevi is set to replace Puli from most of the screens from 16th, as Tamil version will have screening from then on. Owing to deficit shares, Puli was already removed from several theaters in last week. With Rudhramadevi arriving this week, the Chimbu Devan directorial will disappear from most of the screens.
The Nandal Films which bought Rudhramadevi Tamil rights is planning to release the historical drama in 400 screens across Tamil Nadu. Makers have made it clear that the movie will be releasing in both 3D and 2D versions.
Allu Arjun and Anushka are recognizable for Tamil audience, while Rana Daggubati became household name in Tamil and other languages after the release of Baahubali.
On the other hand, Rudhramadevi is performing exceptionally well in Kerala. The film has grossed around Rs 1.63 crores in just 3 days, thanks to Allu Arjun’s craze in the state.
