While the new Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai faces unexpected opposition from sections of Maharashtra politics and politicians, Telugu superstar-producer Nagarjuna whose son Akhil Akinneni’s new starrer Hello releases alongside Tiger Zinda Hai says he, and Andhra Pradesh are okay with the Salman factor.
“How can we oppose the release of a Hindi film just because it is expected to be a success? That’s not healthy competition. In my times so many of my Telugu films were dubbed and released in Hindi. At that time, nobody opposed my dubbed appearance in Mumbai’s theatres. So now when Bollywood films, or for that matter Hollywood spectacles, are our competition we should be thinking of equalling not killing the competition,” rationalizes Nagarjuna.
