After the makers cancelled Allu Arjun’s Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo Hindi release by releasing a statement yesterday, the film is all set to enjoy its television premiere on February 6. The film which also stars Pooja Hegde will air on Dhinchaak channel. The film’s Hindi release was cancelled because Allu Arjun’s father Allu Aravind, who is one of the co-producers of the film felt that it will be detrimental to the business of Kartik Aaryan’s and Kriti Sanon’s upcoming film Shehzada, which is the official Hindi remake of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
Cashing in on the success of Allu Arjun's Pushpa: The Rise, the makers had planned to release Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo also in Hindi. However, with the release now being cancelled, fans can enjoy the film on television. The official Twitter handle of Goldmines Telefilms, producer of Ala Vaikumthapurramuloo, shared the announcement and wrote, “#AlaVaikunthapurramuloo (Hindi) will not open in cinemas. However, to honour fans, we are excited to announce the release of this highly anticipated film on DHINCHAAK TV, India’s leading movie channel, A Goldmines venture, on February 6th (sic).”
