Sankranti 2024: Guntur Kaaram, Eagle, Naa Saami Ranga, HanuMan producers to not back out of BO race
From the looks of it, Mahesh Babu, Ravi Teja, Nagarjuna and Teja Sajja will directly be competing for audience footfall and box office traction, come Sankranti.
Sankranti 2024 is shaping up to be a major weekend at the movies for the Telugu film industry. The mid January weekend slot is looking at four simultaneous big banner releases. While this can turn out to be a blockbuster weekend for Telugu cinema, business is bound to get divided between the four films with audiences being spoilt for choice. A meeting amid the Telugu Film Chamber was recently held to address the same.
The Telugu Film Chamber meeting was inconclusive
For the unversed, the Telugu Film Chamber is currently presided over by Dil Raju, the president of the representative body. The meeting in question was originally supposed to be held between producers Naga Vamsi, TG Vishwa Prasad, Srinivas Chutturi and Niranjan Reddy. While the former three were in attendance, Reddy opted to skip the discussion.
While Naga Vamsi is producing Mahesh Babu's Guntur Kaaram, TG Vishwa Prasad is producing Ravi Teja's Eagle. Srinivas Chutturi has bankrolled Nagarjuna's Naa Saami Ranga whereas Niranjan Reddy has produced fantasy action drama HanuMan. As per a 123Telugu report, none of the producers are interested in backing out of the Sankranti race, adamant on releasing their film on the announced dates. Dil Raju has reportedly shared how a final decision on the same will be taken by next week.
