RRR vs Maidaan: 'I was under pressure from the distributors,' says Jr NTR-Ram Charan's film producer D V V Danayya | Bollywood Life

The box office clash of RRR and Maidaan has been grabbing the headlines among the trade experts and audience. While the fraternity members slammed the RRR makers for announcing the release despite knowing the arrival of Maidaan, producer of Jr NTR and Ram Charan starrer, D V V Danayya has reacted to this controversy and told E Times, “Look, ‘RRR’ has been sold out to the distributors. There is COVID all over us and therefore, there has been a delay in its release. I was under pressure from the distributors.” Also Read – RRR vs Maidaan: Boney Kapoor questions, ‘Why a Rajamouli film, after Baahubali, needs a holiday weekend?’

Distribut Suniel Wadhwa also shared his thoughts on the clash and asserted, “It is absolutely unethical on part of the legendary and respected Rajamouli who I consider as Indian James Cameron to have set up this clash. ‘Maidaan’ was announced earlier and it should get its free space. Our industry is just about coming back on track and that’s evident with the box-office of ‘Master’ which garnered Rs 188 Cr in its first week worldwide. If it had a similar clash, the results might not have been the same. There is no question of people not coming back to theatres which ‘Master’ has amply proved. What this clash, if it happens, will do is that it will cut off the exponential growth of both films. Remember, the purchasing power of the audience in this post-COVID phase is going to be limited, one is not going to watch two or three films in theatres over a weekend.” Also Read – Tuesday Trivia: Kajol and Renukha Shahane reveal that Ajay Devgn REFUSED to do a cameo in Tribhanga [Exclusive]

Another senior distributor Ramesh Sippy told the portal, “Film industry mein koi kisika nahi hai. Haven’t there been such cases before that despite several discussions and pleas, producers have not bended? I refuse to buy that a distributor can force a producer or a director to release a film on the date that he wants. It is always the producer or director’s call.” Also Read – When Ajay Devgn wasn’t very keen to meet Kajol after she came out as ‘loud, arrogant and a very talkative person’
