Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Gang Leader was to be re-released on February 11th. But the producers have postponed it as they were not satisfied with the 4k Output. New release date will be issued soon.
The film Gang Leader was released on May 9, 1991, directed by Vijaya Bapinidu and not only the film became a massive success at the box office, but it was also a milestone film in his brief career. In this movie Chiranjeevi and Vijayashanthi acted as a lead pair, Murali Mohan, Rao Gopala Rao, Kaikala, Allu Ramalingaiah, Nirmalamma, Anandraj, Maganti Murali Mohan, Sarath Kumar, Sumalatha, Sudha, Narayana Rao and Hari Prasad acted in other roles.
Re-release of star heroes films has become a trend these days in the Telugu film industry. It all started with the special shows of Okkadu and Pokiri which were held on August 8th and 9th in the last year to celebrate Superstar Mahesh Babu’s birthday. The response was huge to the shows.
Pokiri and Jalsa re-releases were done on birthday specials of Mahesh Babu and Pawan Kalyan and both were a complete celebration by the fans and the team has used the collections of the shows for charity even the same happened with Nandamuri Balakrishna’s ChennaKeshavareddy as well.
However, it now looks like re releasing the old Super hit films has become just a business. The latest re releases like Kushi, Okkadu , Badri, Tholiprema all these films were planned just for a business purpose, but Badri and Tholi Prema re-release were also cancelled because of the disinterest of the fans.
Keeping aside the fact that it brings nostalgic vibes to the audience and euphoria in theaters, these special shows will affect the run of small films on the other side and the organizers and fans should plan these events in a way that without overdoing and disturbing the new releases.
