Balayya’s Lion is all set to release on May 1. Raviteja’s Kick 2 will release just six days after Lion. Interestingly Kick 2 is produced by Nandamuri Kalyan Ram.
Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, who recently scored super hit’ with the movie, ‘Pataas’, is producing ‘Kick 2′ with Ravi Teja and Rakul Preet Singh in the leads. Stylish filmmaker’ Surender Reddy who gave a bumper hit Athanokkade to Kalyan Ram is directing the movie.Now the film got its release date. As per reports Kalyan Ram who is the producer of the Raviteja starrer wants to release the movie on May 7th as his first commercial hit ‘Athanokkade’ released on the day. As we know, Balakrishna’s ‘Lion’ is slated for a release on May 1 and now ‘Kick 2’ is being contemplated to release on May 7. So we are going to witness an interesting clash between Ravi Teja and Balakrishna.
If we have to call this a ‘Nandamuri Nama Samavatsaram’, then we need to appreciate Kalyanram for blowing the conch shell early. His ‘Pataas’ brought that enormous happiness to Nandamuri fans followed by Temper of Jr NTR. Before we see what Balayya will do with Lion, we hear that fans are upset with Kalyanram.
For him, a minimum of 4-5 weeks is required now to put a cool 35+ crore share on board for Balayya. In that case, Kalyanram should have left him with breathing space rather positioning Kick 2 right behind Lion. That’s the thing where Nandamuri fans are little upset. Nandamuri hero’s film is different from Nandamuri hero’s production with outside hero, they say.
