Allu Arjun's most-awaited film "S/O Satyamurthy" is scheduled to release in 1,350 screens across the globe on 9 April, but it will not be able to break the record of Mahesh Babu's "Aagadu".
"S/O Satyamurthy" is family drama and has been directed by Trivikram Srinivas and produced by S Radha Krishna under the banner Haarika and Haasine Creations. The makers of the movie, who are busy with its promotional activities, have shelled out a hefty sum on its publicity as well as production. They have grand plans for its release across the globe.
The newspaper advertisements show that "S/O Satyamurthy" will release in over 285 cinema halls in Nizam region alone. Sources suggest that this number is likely cross 300 on its opening day as the makers are still in talks with some theatre owners. The movie will grace 550 screens in other areas of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The film will hit around 850 screens in both these states.
The Allu Arjun starrer will hit 50 screens in Tamil Nadu, over 90 theatres in Karnataka over 85 in North Indian areas such as Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bharuch, Goa, Kolkata, Latur, NCR, Pune, Surat, Vadodara, Vapi and Odisha. Apart from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the movie will be released in a total of over 225 cinema halls in other parts of the country.
Classics Entertainments, which has acquired the overseas distribution rights of "S/O Satyamurthy", has planned to release the film in 153 screens in US. The movie will beat the record of Aagadu, which was the biggest Tollywood release in the country with its screen count crossing 125.
The distribution house will release "S/O Satyamurthy" in 11 screens in Canada, five screens in Kuwait, 12 in the UK and 20 screens in other foreign countries. The movie will be screened in more than 200 cinema halls in the international markets. Trade experts say this is the biggest screen count for a Telugu film ever.
"S/O Satyamurthy" will be released in more than 1,375 cinema halls in the global market. The movie will become the biggest release of 2015, beating the records of previous releases of the year -- "Temper" and "Gopala Gopala". But it will not break the record of all-time biggest release "Aagadu", which had hit 1,450 screens across the globe.
