Looks like Mani Ratnam’s Cheliyaa and Venkatesh’s Guru will be competing with each other on 7th April as both movies are aiming for the release on that date. Venkatesh’s Guru was to release on 26th January but it got delayed. Though there is no official announcement from the makers of Guru about release date, the trade has been informed. April 7th is the date they have locked for it.
On the other hand, Karthi and Aditi Rao Hyderi starrer Cheliyaa has confirmed 7th April as its release date in Tamil and Telugu languages. Mani Ratnam’s plan is to release this movie as the Tamil New Year’s (April 14) special.
Guru is one of the most-awaited movies this year. It stars Venkatesh as a boxing coach, while Ritika Singh has played his disciple. Being directed by Sudha Kongara, the movie is the remake of super hit Saala Khadoos.
Venkatesh crooned a song called Jingidi Jingidi that is topping the chartbusters. This is the first time that he sang for a film. It has Santosh Narayan as music director. Set in the backdrop of Vizag, Guru is produced by Y Not Studios.
