Dhanush to take on mighty Telugu stars during Sankranthi ?

Tamil star Dhanush is banking on 'Captain Miller' to showcase his crowd pulling prowess

Contrary to the reports that Tamil dubbed movies will not get theaters in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana during Sankranthi festival, a distributor claims that the much-hyped Tamil film ‘Captain Miller’ starring reigning star Dhanush will get some theatres in two Telugu states. “With makers of ‘Captain Miller’ insisting on releasing the film during Sankranthi holidays, Telugu exhibitors could allow a few shows for Dhanush’s periodic action adventure. For instance, if there are six shows in a theatre, ‘Guntur Kaaram’ will be screened for four shows, while 'Captain Miller' will get two shows from Jan 12 onwards,” says a distributor.

The leading distributor also claims that national award winning actor has gained a fan following among Telugu viewers after super-hit Telugu film ‘Sir’, so Telugu exhibitors are accommodating the film despite a big competition among Telugu films. “Dhanush could draw in openings since he is seen in a new avatar and it is another different film from the talented actor,” he points out.

He further adds,"Dhanush would have fetched better price for the makers from Telugu market but now they content releasing the film on ‘sharing’ basis. As they fixed the release date of January 12 all over the world, they couldn’t defer the date for Telugu version alone,” he adds.

Realising his rising popularity among Telugu viewers, Dhanush is doing more Telugu films these days. After doing Telugu film ‘Sir,’ he is teaming up with Telugu director like Sekhar Kammula for a big ticket entertainer in Tollywood. “He will be expanding his fan base in Telugu states in the days to come,” he concludes.
