Can Jr NTR’s ‘Oosaravelli’ beat Mahesh Babu’s ‘Dookudu’?

That’s what the industry wants to know as Oosaravelli producers pull out all the stops in their marketing campaign

The war is on between Jr NTR and Mahesh Babu. Or rather, between Oosaravelli and Dookudu. Oosaravelli’s producer BVSN Prasad is doing everything he can to make sure that their film comes out tops in the fight. We hear that while Dookudu released in 75 centres in the United States of America, Oosaravelli will be released in 91 centres across the country. He has also planned for several premiere shows the day before the official release on October 6. The producer seems to be of the belief that if he increases the number of theatres, they can rake in more moolah and beat the opening record set by Dookudu. In the film’s major market, the Nizam territory, Oosaravelli will release in 220 theatres – which is 15 theatres more than Dookudu. We also hear that Prasad has ordered for 200 cutouts of Jr NTR to be set up in major cities, towns and theatres across Andhra Pradesh. The makers are also promoting the two major fights in the film, with the hope that it will draw in the audiences. But whether they will succeed in defeating Dookudu remains to be seen.

Oosaravelli also stars Tamannaah Bhatia, Payal Ghosh and Prakash Raj.
