After lot of hullaballoo, YVS announced that ‘Rey’ will hit screens on May 9th, the day that had seen release of Megastar’s movies like Gangleader and Jagadeka Veerudu. Promotions are started already, and our director will further intensify them upon getting close to release date. But here comes the mega hurdle. Superstar Rajnikanth’s latest movie ‘Vikramasimha’ is being planned for a worldwide release on the same date. One of the producers of the movie revealed that already Rajni gave signal for May 9th and they are holding discussions with marketing partners to position the movie perfectly.
Rajnikanth got huge market in Tollywood too and the collections of his previous flick ‘Robo’ proved it all. In that case, Vikramasimha will be a big threat for Rey that is aiming to score a brownie at box office with a singular entry. Rajni will surely zero on more than 1000 theatres, and it is a bad idea to compete with such enormity.
