Victory Venkatesh While there are already a dozen films for Sankranti, Venkatesh (Daggubati Venkatesh) is also coming. The director-producers have officially announced that Saindhav, in which he is acting, will release on January 13. Even though it was supposed to be released on December 22, the date had to be changed as Salar was coming on the same day. The film, directed by Shailesh Kolan, is Venkatesh’s 75th film, so expectations are high. Plus Saindhav comes with a huge budget. That’s when it becomes interesting why Venky is coming to Sankranti despite so much competition.
There is only one reason for that.. Venky’s most successful movies in the past are all coming to the festival. Venky has made a habit of coming to Sankranti since 1988. Rakthatilakam came that year.. Prema was released in 1989.. Chanti in 1992.. Pokiri Raja in 1994.. Dharmachakram in 95.. Chinnabbai in 1996.. Kalisundam Raa in 2000.. Devi Putrudu in 2001.. Lakshmi in 2006.. Namo Venkatesha in 2010.. 201 Bodyguard in 2 .. Seethamma Vakitlo in 2013.. Gopala Gopala in 2015.. Venkatesh came to Sankranti with movies like F2 in 2019.
In this, except for movies like Pokiri Raja, Chinnabhai, Dharmachakram, Bodyguard, almost all of them have been successful. Moreover, films like Chanti, Lakshmi, Kalisundam Raa increased Venky’s market immensely. That’s why he is coming to Pongal because it is a festival of unity even though there is so much competition. And don’t see what kind of magic he will do with Saindhav this time.
