While last week releases Bimbisara and Sita Ramam brought back the celebration for Tollywood, trade circles are keen watching what happened to the fact of the upcoming films in this month. As August month started on a positive note, filmmakers and buyers are expecting the same momentum will continue further with the upcoming releases.
Apart from Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s emotional drama, Laal Singh Chaddha, two straight Telugu films in the form of Macherla Niyojikavargam and Karthikeya 2 are ready for a release.
Though the Telugu dubbed version of Laal Singh Chaddha is releasing in Telugu, the advance bookings give a clear picture that the Telugu audience are least bothered about Laal Singh Chaddha despite Naga Chaitanya doing a key role in the movie.
