Pushpa: The Rise – Part 01, starring Allu Arjun, thankfully has managed to attract audiences but the footfalls are naturally depleting week after week. The exhibitors stared at losses and even temporary closure due to the lack of content.
A reason to cheer after it was announced that the Hindi version of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo would be released in cinemas on January 26.
Manish Shah of Goldmines Telefilms, who released Pushpa: The Rise – Part 01 in Hindi, also holds the rights to Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. The latter also stars Allu Arjun and the original Telugu version was a blockbuster. In the words of Manish Shah, “Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is the biggest non-Baahubali hit down South.” Hence, a lot of hopes are pinned on the Hindi version.
When asked when the theatrical trailer of the film will be out, he replied, “It’ll be out on Thursday, January 20.” The teaser of the film was released on Tuesday, January 18.
As for the screen count, Manish Shah said, “We are hoping to release it in 2000 screens across the country.”
When asked about the promotional plans, Manish Shah made an interesting point, “You can see the promos of the film on our channel, Dhinchak TV. Our whole promotional strategy is focused on the platform where our target audience is present. We plan to target a single-screen audience. And they watch movie channels. So, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’s teaser and trailer will play in full swing on the movie channels. We’ll also give ads in papers. We are not targeting the elite audience at all.
They’ll anyway be informed about Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’s release through social media. However, we want to inform viewers who are not on social media but who watch TV channels and read newspapers.
