It’s like a massive storm hitting Indian theatres, ahead of Superstar Rajinikanth’s film release. Infact, the star hero enjoys similar craze in some other parts of the world as well. But, the China distributor of his previous film ‘2.0’ has backed off fearing the release of Disney’s Hollywood outing ‘Lion King’.
HY Media, distributor of 2.0 in China, decided to cancel the release of movie which’s scheduled to open on July 12th. Though ‘Lion King’ is striding on 19th July in rest of the countries, it is coming a week earlier in China – 12th July. Considering that Lion King could make a huge dent to Superstar Rajinikanth’s movie at box-office, the distributor wanted to avoid a clash with it and so, decided to call off the release for now.
Fans of the hero, who hoping to catch the movie in China and those who’re waiting for box-office numbers of 2.0 in neighbouring nation, were in for a disappointment when they learnt about the cancellation. HY Media’s previous buy, Padman, which left them in huge losses might have forced the distributor to take this call.
