With ‘Sye Raa’ chants all over the state, who would dare to release a movie locking horn with a magnum opus? Gopichand took this bold step for the sake of his next film ‘Chanakya’. The movie unit who recently wrapped up the pre-release event is now all set for the release on October 5. Bankrolled as a spy thriller, the movie claims to revolve around the mind games amidst hero and villain. Mehreen Pirzada and Zareen Khan are playing female leads. Directed by Thiru, the movie’s non-theatrical rights have been sold for a total of Rs 15 crore recently.
When asked about the clash with ‘Sye Raa’, the makers AK Entertainments has expressed their confidence over the movie’s genre and has banked upon the Dasara season. The movie has already postponed the release twice and has finally locked the dates to hit the theatres. While this movie stands to be crucial for Gopichand, let us see if the daring move is worthy.
