Latest news from Kollywood is that Ajith starrer David Billa has been postponed to July 13. Apparently, Aascar Ravichandran, who’s distributing the film in Tamil Nadu, wanted to avoid clash with ‘The Amazing Spiderman’ which is being promoted and released in a big way in Tamil Nadu. With S S Rajamouli’s Naan Ee releasing the week after that, Ravichandran decided to release the film on July 13. The next biggest release in Tamil is Suriya’s Maatran (Duplicate in Telugu) which is expected to release on August 15, which leaves almost a month’s gap for Ajith’s David Billa to rule the box office, at least in Tamil Nadu.
The situation in Andhra Pradesh is quite different. Two big films – Julaayi and Devudu Chesina Manushulu are releasing on or around July 13th, leaving very few screens for David Billa. It will be a suicidal step for the Telugu version if the movie gets postponed.
