Superstar Rajini films have been failing to live up to expectations lately. Even Shankar's sci-fi thriller 2.0 couldn't recover the big bucks spent by its buyers.
Rajini's market in Telugu states took a huge hit that his latest film Petta struggled find takers for a long time.
Makers of Petta decided to release it for Sankranthi in spite of three Telugu biggies. Naturally, it didn't have enough screens available with almost all the theaters blocked for NTR biopic, VVR and F2.
Petta producers are blaming the producers and distributors of Telugu biggies for blocking all the theaters.
Petta is releasing today in Telugu in spite of the ongoing controversy regarding theaters.
The film directed by talented Karthik Subbaraju has grabbed eyeballs with terrific promos and songs. Vintage Rajini style and charisma has been brought on to screen after a long time.
Can Petta withstand heavy competition and come out as winner in Telugu states? It is a big challenge for Rajini to perform against all odds.
