Nani and Sudheer Babu starrer V which marks the 25th film of Natural Star is scheduled for release on 25th of this month on Telugu New Year- Ugadi eve. But, it seems, makers are planning to postpone the film and it is a good idea indeed considering various negative factors.
Of course, Coronavirus is the prime reason. Perhaps no industry is being damaged as widely by the rapid spread of Covid-19 as entertainment. Though there won’t be much effect in Telugu states, films which will release in next few weeks will definitely have negative effect in overseas. Even, several big ticket Hollywood films are getting postponed. Nani has good market value in overseas and it is advisable for him to postpone his film.
Local body polls in Andhra Pradesh are scheduled from March 21st to 29th. So, the elections will also become a setback for V.
Third and the most important reason is V is carrying very low buzz. Generally, Nani’s films carry optimistic reports, much before the release. But, it’s not in case of V. Perhaps because of low key promotions and not so engaging promotional stuff, V is unable to make the noise.
Thus, considering all these factors, it is sensible of postponing the film to next month. Meanwhile, they will get enough time to promote the movie as well.
