The clash of Balakrishna Nandamuri and NTR Jr at the Sankranthi box office with their respective films Dictator and Nannaku Prematho has taken a political turn now.
It is heard that TDP cadre in many areas of Andhra Pradesh is trying to snub Nannaku Prematho by snatching it’s already less screens and allot them to Dictator. Many exhibitors are complaining that they are receiving threats from TDP leaders to screen Dictator instead of Nannaku Prematho in their theatres. In Ceded area, which is called the adda of NTR since he has mad fan following there, NTR is unable to find screens as most of the theatres are allotted to Dictator.
Considering the stardom and given the craze for the film, Nannaku Prematho is carrying much greater buzz than Dictator, but the political forces are backing Balayya starrer and NTR fans are angry and disappointed at the happenings.
