Earlier this yr, Rajinikanth-starrer Petta went on to grow to be a superhit on the Tamil Nadu field workplace however the movie couldn’t shine as a lot in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Often, Rajinikanth’s movies carry out at par with huge Telugu movies in Tollywood however each Kabali and Kaala proved his market has shrunk significantly in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Although 2.0 grossed practically Rs 83 crore within the two Telugu-speaking states, his subsequent movie Petta miserably failed on the Tollywood field workplace primarily as a result of the manufacturing home’s (Solar Footage) poor resolution to conflict towards three Telugu biggies — Ram Charan’s Vinaya Vidheya Rama, Nandamuri Balakrishna’s NTR: Kathanayakudu and Venkatesh-Varun Tej’s multi-starrer F2: Fun and Frustration.
As everyone knows, Rajinikanth’s upcoming cop motion thriller Darbar is scheduled to launch on Pongal/Sankranti 2020. Identical to how Petta misplaced out on an enormous income chunk within the Telugu-speaking states by clashing towards three biggies, Darbar additionally runs the identical danger because it should conflict towards three big-budget Telugu movies.
Mahesh Babu’s Sarileru Neekevvaru has been confirmed for Sankranti 2020 launch as director Anil’s earlier movie, F2: Enjoyable and Frustration, minted large cash owing to its launch on the pageant day.
Tollywood commerce sources additionally say that Allu Arjun-Trivikram Srinivas‘ most anticipated movie, which is progressing at a speedy tempo, may even hit the screens for the Sankranti pageant weekend.

In Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Sankranti is taken into account to be an even bigger pageant than Diwali so any Tamil heroes, who’ve a large market in Tollywood, shouldn’t launch their movies on Pongal as they won’t get sufficient screens within the Telugu-speaking states.
Alternatively, Pongal can be probably the greatest launch dates for Tamil biggies so stars have to decide on between their Tamil and Telugu markets. In Tamil Nadu, each Diwali and Pongal are thought of to be necessary launch dates for giant finances movies as a result of solely lengthy vacation weekends can assist patrons to get better their mammoth investments.
Although the shoot of Darbar can be wrapped up by September, the makers choose Pongal launch for 2 causes — the Diwali launch slot is already occupied by Vijay’s sports-based motion entertainer Bigil with director Atlee; and the opposite cause is that the Pongal pageant labored in favour of Rajinikanth’s Petta in Tamil Nadu.
The opposite two areas the place Darbar will lose out its income are Karnataka and the US, the place Rajinikanth should conflict towards Mahesh Babu, who has a better command in these territories. Because the US is the primary abroad marketplace for Telugu movies, it is not going to be a simple activity for the Darbar distributors to get document variety of screens.
Although consultants within the Telugu movie commerce say that staff Darbar may postpone the Telugu dubbed model to the Republic Day weekend, there’s a large danger concerned as any unfavourable assessment for the Tamil model would have a ripple impact in Tollywood.
