He always remembers how he used to be highly competitive early in his career but then learnt that he shouldn’t be doing things that put movie and its business in jeopardy for competition.
So, even if people have told him otherwise, he never tried to go against something that looks bigger and more buzzy, threatening than his film.
On the other hand, Venkatesh films like Deviputrudu released against Mrugaraju, movie done by same combination – Chiranjeevi- Gunasekhar, after a crazy blockbuster like Chudalani Undi, Narasimha Naidu – a movie by Balakrishna – B. Gopal after Samarasimha Reddy, during 2002 Sankranthi.
Now, a Dasara battle with Chiranjeevi might be avoided by Venky Mama team, as Sye Raa making video sent some tremors down the naysayers, who were putting it down.
Suresh Babu wanted to take Dasara advantage with Venky Mama as it has Naga Chaitanya joining Venkatesh for the first time in a full film.
With Sye Raa being so strong, Chiranjeevi craze can overcome any kind of strong competition as Khaidi No.150 was a bigger hit than Gautamiputra Satakarni which did get positive feedback that too during Sankranthi.
Hence, the injury to Venkatesh is being shown as the reason for postponement of the film even though it isn’t made official. Until recently, the team said that the leg injury was negligible and he is shooting but now, they are saying that the actor needs time to heal. Hence, shoot has been halted.
Let’s see if the movie team pulls off any miracle to release during Dasara if the injury is that serious or if they postpone for Sye Raa and come for next available big holiday weekend?!
