Prioritizing Telugu: Producer Dil Raju confirms the home team advantage, citing the abundance of Telugu releases and limited screens vying for the Sankranthi audience. Even dubbing films have to wait in the wings until Telugu movies have their dance in the limelight.
Tamil Hopes Dimmed: The four Tamil films mentioned – Captain Miller, Ayalaan, Merry Christmas, and Mission – originally planned to waltz into Telugu theaters alongside their Telugu counterparts. However, with the limited dance floor, their Telugu premieres might just end up as a dream sequence.
