Mumbai : There is no such thing as healthy competition in Bollywood and only two halves of the victim trade. Various speculations are being made regarding the release of the film. Even after the release of KGF Chapter Two, which is to be released on the next date, April 14, many big theaters of the country are refusing to release the film due to its old antics.
In 2018, KGF Chapter One also did tremendous business in the Hindi belt with an earning of 55 crores. Made in a budget of Rs 80 crore, the film did a business of Rs 250 crore worldwide. His hero Yash became famous overnight from house to house. Since then the KGF chapter is awaited. Now even in its advance booking, new records are being broken. The Hindi version has been booked in advance for Rs 10 crore and even in countries like Bihar and Orissa, the show is fully booked in the initial days.
However, taking advantage of this situation, the producers and distributors of KGF Tuna are reconciling old accounts with many theater owners and refusing to allow them to perform KGF Tuna. Big production houses and big distributors get a good film every two to five years but in the intervening years they hit the audience with lazy films too. Theater owners release such lazy films only once because they are tempted to get big star cast and big budget movies from these production or distribution companies in future. Yash Raj, Dharma, Sajid Nadiadwala, Reliance Entertainment, Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment all get a lot of screens because of their wealth, past record and financial strength as no theater owner is willing to spoil their relationship with them.
Controversy has increased after the release of the films which were stalled during the Corona period. When 83 films were released, many single screen theater owners opted to play Pushpa instead. Along with this, he was warned not to do big films in future. The film was then replicated in Kashmir Files. Due to the spontaneous response, the Kashmir Files film was so overrated that many single screen theater owners avoided showing Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey.
Now, in retaliation, several prestigious cinemas are being denied a potential blockbuster film like KGF Two. Some nationwide reputed theaters in Mumbai and Jaipur are also facing this dilemma. Several theater owners have also taken to social media to discuss the issue. This is an example of how big Bollywood leaders are struggling to maintain their dominance even after southern films and OTT attacks.
