Sankranthi is always a good season for movie releases in Tollywood, where atleast 3 to 4 big movies will be released. As huge crowds turn out to the theatres during this big festival season, filmmakers make sure that their films will be in the Sankranthi race.
While only F2 remained as a blockbuster hit for this Sankranthi, other films such as Vinaya Vidheya Rama, NTR Kathanayakudu and Mr. Majnu have bombed at the box office.
Now, how is it going to be the next year, and which heroes films are going to clash at the box office.. Let us have a look..

Directed by 'Jil' fame Radhakrishna, happening beauty Pooja Hegde is playing Prabhas's love interest in this vintage love drama set in 1920s. Keeping in mind the elevated craze of Prabhas after Baahubali, the makers are releasing the film in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages.
