At one stage, Trade pundits predicted that Nizam distributor of ‘Atharintiki Daredi’ will have a tough time in getting good number of screens for the film as Dil Raju is very strong in this region and won’t be allowing anyone to take the lead. Even the release of ‘Yevadu’ was planned in record number of screens here. However, the postponement of the film to August 21st has changed the entire scenario. All of these theatres have now fell vacant and this situation is going to benefit the people associated with ‘Atharintiki Daredi’ in a big way.
In Nizam territory alone, ‘Yevadu’ was supposed to release in 320 screens and all of them have been now routed to ‘Atharintiki Daredi’. The fantastic pre-release hype and mind-blowing screen count will ensure record openings for the family entertainer. Interestingly, ‘AD’ will have no opposition what-so-ever from any other big films for the first two weeks and the Ramzan-Independence Day week is an additional advantage. This is an ideal situation for the release of a big film and no doubt Nithin is having the last laugh.
