Raghava Lawrence has been caught in a strange situation, wherein, his two films are likely to be released on the same day. Yes, as per the buzz, his upcoming Sivalinga and much-delayed Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva are hitting the screens on February 17.
Reports say that for some reason, both of Raghava Lawrence's two films are releasing on the same day. As per industry experts, it is not good from the business point of view as it will only impact each other's collection.
Moreover, getting the right number of screens for release could be a daunting task, when two movies of the actor releases on the same day. Adding to that, Bogan and Singam 3 are releasing on February 2 and 9. This might create a major issue for both the movies.
However, neither Raghava Lawrence nor the makers of the two movies have opened up on the issue.
