All the six movies are slated for release on November 24. Since they belong to different genres, the audience will get split. Made on a small budget, they lack much promotion. But Balakrishnudu is bigger in terms of its star power, and well planned promotion. Therefore, it is likely to lead the race at the box office this week.
