When it was announced that Mahesh babu starrer Sarileru Neekevvaru & Allu Arjun starrer Vaikunthapurramuloo wing will arrive on the screens the same day, on January 12, there was a big scandal over the clash of two major releases before Sankranthi.

Stating how releasing two big-budgeted films on the same day with not generate profit for either, ATFPG president Dil Raju said, “From the last few days there has been much discussion around the release dates of these films.
