If the buzz from industry insiders is to be believed, Tholi Prema that was postponed by a day to avert clash with Intelligent film is likely to release on Feb 9 only.
As Tholi Prema is releasing in US a day ahead of domestic release, the makers are worried of pirated videos to do damage to its prospects.
Tholi Prema release was pushed by a day as per Dil Raju’s suggestion but its release in USA is not delayed.
Releasing the film in overseas ahead of domestic release may not be a right idea all the time. Negative word of mouth and bad reviews may affect the opening in Telugu states.
Also there is always a headache with the whatsapp forwards and Facebook videos that cannot be controlled.
So producer BVSN Prasad is looking to minimize the gap between overseas and domestic release.
Tholi Prema shows in Telugu states are likely to start from the evening of Feb 9 only. Screening from previous day evening has worked wonders for films like Baahubali 2 and Arjun Reddy.
Hence team Tholi Prema is looking to implement similar strategy.
