What are the theatrical limitations HanuMan is facing?

HanuMan garnered considerable attention even before its release, thanks to special premieres held by the makers on Thursday evening. While the opening day at the box office showcased promising results, a complaint lodged with the Telugu Film Producers Council (TFPC) has darkened the film's success.

The grievance filed by the distributor and producer alleged unfair practices by theatres in screening HanuMan. According to a statement from TFPC, Mythri Movies Distributors LLP, the distributor, had secured agreements with certain Telangana theatres for a January 12 screening. However, some theatres failed to honour the agreement prompting the distributor and producer Niranjan Reddy to file the complaint.
