Following the mammoth success of Arjun’s latest release “Pushpa: The Rise” in the Hindi speaking market, the makers of “Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo” had planned to release the Hindi dubbed version of the action-drama in cinemas on January 26.

“Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo” is also getting a Hindi remake, titled “Shehzada” and starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon.

The decision to withdraw the movie comes after there were reports that the makers of “Shehzada” were not in favour of the film’s release in Hindi over fears that the dubbed version might adversely affect the prospects of the new film.

Written and directed by Trivikram Srinivas, “Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo” also featured Pooja Hegde, Tabu, Jayaram, Sushanth, and Nivetha Pethuraj. It is produced by Allu Aravind and S Radha Krishna.
