The much-awaited movie Agnyaathavaasi, with leading Telugu actor Pawan Kalyan, releasing on Wednesday, will have seven shows in cinema theatres in Andhra Pradesh and five in Telangana.
Two days after the Andhra Pradesh government granted permission to cinema halls to screen three special shows in addition to four regular shows, the Telangana government on Tuesday allowed theatres to screen a special show.
The star's fans and cinema enthusiasts in both the Telugu states are expected to enjoy 'Sankranthi' holidays as both the states relaxed the rules for screening the movie between January 10 and January 17.
While theatres in Andhra Pradesh can screen special shows from 1 am to 10 am, in addition to regular shows between 10 am to midnight, theatres in Telangana have been permitted to have one special show from 8 am.
Directed by Trivikram Srinivas, Agnyaathavaasi is the most awaited movie of Tollywood and the advance booking for the tickets has already received huge response. It is expected to be a blockbuster at the box office.
Popular as a â€˜power starâ€™, Pawan Kalyan, who is also founder of political party Jana Sena, has a huge fan following in both the Telugu states.
Agnyaathavaasi is Pawanâ€™s third film with director Trivikram Srinivas, who earlier directed Jalsa and Attarintiki Daredi, both blockbusters.
Music for the film is by Anirudh Ravichander, who is making his debut in Tollywood.
The film is being produced by S Radha Krishna under the banner Haarika & Haasine Creations. For the first time, Keerthy Suresh has been paired with Pawan Kalyan. Anu Emmanuel is also playing an important role in the film.
The cast also includes Khushboo, Boman Irani, Rao Ramesh and others.
The trailer, which has gone viral on social media, promises an action-packed film.
"Behind every comfort we wish for, there is a mini-war," Pawan's character declares in the trailer.
Agnyaathavaasi is Pawan's 25th film, and the teaser of the movie was released last month.
