Why BAN and NPS are left with no option except postponement


BAN and NPS are left with no option except postponement

Mahesh Babu’s Bharat Ane Nenu and Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya were supposed to hit the screens for Summer. NPS was the first film to book its berth on April 27th. However, BAN producer surprised everyone by officially stating that they are going to release the film on April 27th. This led to a scuffle between the two producers and as the issue is turning murkier, they decided to amicably settle the issue. Many felt that one film is likely to back out from the race to avert clash.

Then came a rude shock for both NPS and BAN in the form of Rajinikanth’s 2.0, which was officially announced to release on April 27th. This announcement drew flak from both BAN and NPS producers. They decided to seek film council’s intervention to settle the issue. However, both films are now confirmed to have altered their dates.

BAN and NPS have no other option except to look for alternative dates because 2.0 is being released through Asian Cinemas in Telugu states. Apart from the fact that it is a Rajinikanth film, 2.0 will get a huge screen count in Telugu states because Asian Cinemas own nearly 60-70 % screens in Nizam area. So, this will seriously impact both NPS and BAN openings. Hence, both producers have decided to back out from the April 27th race.

It is now learnt that BAN will release two weeks earlier than 2.0 and NPS will release on May 11.
