Manish Shah who is releasing the Hindi dubbed version of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’ has been getting calls to convince him not to release the film on January 26. There have been speculations that actor Kartik Aaryan too met him for the same.
However, speaking exclusively to ETimes, Shah denied and said, “Kartik has not met me but they are feeling that the release of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’ will affect the business of ‘Shehzada’. So we are now looking at the best way forward to ensure that ‘Shehzada’ is not affected.”
Also, Allu Aravind, father of Allu Arjun who has backed both the films – ‘Shehzaada’ and’ ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’- has reached Mumbai to try and stall the release of the Hindi dubbed version of the latter. A source told ETimes, “The Kartik Aaryan starrer ‘Shehzada’ (with Kriti Sanon opposite him) is the official Hindi remake of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’, which Allu Aravind is co-producing with Bhushan Kumar and Aman Gill. Allu Aravind would ideally like ‘Shehzada’ to be the only Hindi version of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’.”
