Recently, Allu Arjun surprised his fans by announcing the release of the Hindi dubbed version of his film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo that also stars Pooja Hegde. The film was announced as a big Republic Day release on nearly 2000 screens and was subsequently announced by Manish Girish Shah who holds the rights of the film’s Hindi version and is the promoter on the film. However, Allu Aravind (Allu Arjun’s father) and co-producer on the film was not too happy about it as he felt that the dubbed version will be detrimental to the business of Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon starrer Shehzada that is the official remake of the Telugu film.
Now, the makers have released a joint statement saying that the release of Hindi version of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo will be withdrawn so that it does not impact the business of Shehzada. The statement reads, “To Media and Trade, Manish Shah promoter of Goldmines along with the makers of Shehzada have jointly decided to withdraw the theatrical release of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo Hindi version. Shehzada makers are thankful to Manish Shah for agreeing to the same. Goldmines.”
