It is a known fact that some areas are under the hands of powerful film makers and the industry is helpless in breaking free from the iron clutches of the few influential and powerful people. Small film makers face the problem quite often in getting theaters to screen their films. Most recently one can notice that Narayanamurthy’s Poru Telangana couldn’t get any theaters to screen the film in Hyderabad and he could only screen his film only at the outskirts like Kompally and other remote areas.
Even Natasimha Balakrishna’s ‘Srimannarayana’ faced the same problem when Arjun theater at Kukatpally removed it for King Nagarjuna’s Shirdi Sai. Many feel that the iron like grip could be noticed even before the release of the film when competition heats up for bagging the distribution rights of the film. Nizam region is the most prestigious and bagging the rights for any film is a huge source of achievement for film makers. But only Allu Aravind and Dil Raju wield iron like grip and Dil Raju even own some of the theaters which is an added advantage for him.
One look at how rights for Pawan Kalyan’s films are sold will show the power of these two film makers. While Allu Arjun bagged Jalsa rights, Dil Raju bagged Gabbar Singh rights. They were in neck and neck competition for Pawan’s upcoming project ‘Cameraman Gangato Rambabu’ and according to latest information, the film’s rights were bagged for a whopping sum by Dil Raju. This shows that Allu Aravind and Dil Raju are having prestigious and profitable Nizam cake with out leaving anything for others.
