Tamil Star hero Vijay is coming up with Chimbu Devan directed Puli hitting the screens worldwide tomorrow with premiere shows in early hours. Although the film is generating enormous curiosity in Tamil, no one is even talking about the sci-fi here. While Tamil spectators and Vijay fans say the trailers of the film were eye-feasting, they appeared like ‘Jujubi’ for Telugu cinema goers.
Since Vijay doesn’t have remarkable market value here, Telugu producers are promoting the film with Shruti Haasan and Sridevi’s alone posters across major cities in Telugu states. Vijay posters are hardly seen, wherein Shruti’s glamorous and Sridevi’s devilish posters are seen everywhere.
Both Shruti Haasan and Sridevi are prominent faces for Telugu spectators. While Shruti is on full form here with Srimanthudu success, Sridevi will be seen on Telugu screens after ages. Cashing on craze of these starlets, producers are cleverly using their posters for the promotions, rather Vijay’s.
However, it is to be seen whether Shruti Haasan and Sridevi can pull Telugu audience to theaters, since Vijay has less fan base here.
