With the pre-release buzz, Nandamuri Balakrishna had bagged heavy amounts with his father’s Biopic 1st part NTR Kathanayakudu, but the movie declared as one of the biggest disasters in Tollywood. As per trade reports NTR Kathanayakudu suffered losses up to 50 Cr for distributors.
Now Balakrishna has decided to give away Mahanayakudu to the distributors for free. Not only the overseas but also local distributors who earlier distributed Kathanayakudu are now going to release Mahanayakudu at free of cost, sources said. Yes, this is a really surprising thing for everyone but it is true and Balakrishna has no other chance. Even though NTR Kathanayakudu got good reviews from critics, the movie has bitten the dust.
Mahanayakudu earlier declared for February 7th release, but the date is now changed to February 14th.
