Veteran producer C Kalyan is reportedly upset with Dil Raju for not releasing screens in Nizam for his Sankranthi film Jai Simha.
As Dil Raju blocked numerous theaters for Agnyaathavaasi at that time, Jai Simha had to settle for fewer screens in the territory. As a result Jai Simha failed to recover its investment in Nizam.
Kalyan is now pitting his film Intelligent against Tholi Prema. Dil Raju who bought distribution rights of Tholi Prema for Telugu states is not a favorite of this mega clash.
He has reportedly asked Kalyan to push his Intelligent to other date but he denied the request.
In fact makers of Intelligent announced the release date much prior to Tholi Prema. So Kalyan has every right to stand by his decision.
The issue between Kalyan and Raju has turned out to be a headache for cousins Sai Dharam Tej and Varun Tej. Now both their films are clashing on Feb 9.
