Victory Venkatesh risks yet again
Venkatesh was undoubtedly one of the best crowd pullers among our Telugu heroes. But that is history. Venkatesh is not anymore hot in the trade. He is also failing to draw great openings like he did until five years ago. However, Venkatesh is too stubborn to stop competing with young stars. Due to the same reason his previous film Bodyguard failed to do well despite having good content.
Bodyguard locked horns with Businessman during last Pongal. As a film Bodyguard was better, but it couldn't withstand the wave of Businessman. This proved that audiences prefer young stars to senior stars. Venkatesh is not willing to agree with that. He is getting into fight with young heroes yet again and that too for Pongal.
NTR's Badshah and Ram Charan's Nayak are going to release for coming Pongal. Venkatesh's Shadow is also aiming for the same season. As per the new business model, accommodating theaters for three biggies is impossible. If Shadow remains in the race, it will have to suffer as NTR and Charan movies will get more screens compared to Venky.
