Tamil movie fans and industry insiders are quite happy after the month-long strike by the producers came to an end a day ago. The producers’ council are currently discussing on the new release dates of movies that have been in the pipeline for a long time now. While Karthik Subbaraj’s Mercury will be the first Tamil movie to release after the strike call-off, the council is yet to take a decision on the next releases after April 20th, 2018. While the discussions are underway, the first Telugu film to release in Tamil Nadu post the strike has been decided.
Mahesh Babu starrer Bharat Ane Nenu will release in Tamil Nadu and will be the first Telugu movie that Tamil audiences will get to see. Major multiplexes and cinema halls have already opened the bookings for Bharat Ane Nenu which is releasing tomorrow April 20th, 2018 worldwide. With already a huge release worldwide, Bharat Ane Nenu gets a boost from Tamil Nadu as well now.

Mahesh Babu’s previous release, Spyder, was a bilingual one and had a huge release in Tamil Nadu. Expectations on the film were towering high although the film couldn’t live up to those post release. And with huge hype around Bharat Ane Nenu, similar expectations would be from Tamil audience on this political drama.
The last Telugu release in Tamil Nadu was Ram Charan starrer Rangasthalam and the distributors has to pull the plug on the film from Tamil Nadu screens due to the strike. Supporting the cause, the makers of Rangasthalam were happy to halt the screenings of the film in Tamil Nadu and did not proceed with it.
With the strike being called off and the TFPC committee working on the new release dates, Tamil audiences will be excited to watch the big-ticket films of their favourite screens in cinema halls.
