The release of the Hindi version of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’ (2020) was stopped on request of ‘Shehzada’ producers to Manish Shah of Goldmines and the leading actor of the film, Kartik Aaryan, never asked his producers of ‘Shehzada’ to intervene or he never threatened to leave the film.
Producer Bhushan Kumar of T-Series says, “We, the producers, felt that ‘Shehzada’ should release in theatre first and not the Hindi version of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’, hence we requested Goldmines not to release the Hindi version and release of the film is always the producers’ decision and not actor.” He further adds, “I have known Kartik since the begining of his career. We have done multiple films together. He is one of the most professional actor, I have worked with.”
Director Rohit Dhawan says, “Kartik’s intent and excitement for ‘Shehzada’ is unquestionable. It’s been a joy working with him. As director and actor, we share a solid bond and nothing can come in the way of our love for the film.”
Producer Aman Gill says, “After finding out about the Hindi version release of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’ we the producers on our own requested Manishji to not release it. Kartik is going all out for ‘Shehzada’ as an actor and only discusses how he can contribute to make this the biggest film for everyone involved, he is one of most dedicated actors in the industry.”
