IPL is not a threat to films any more

It was an old notion that film releasing in IPL or any Cricket season will fail at the box-office. But not anymore. This year Tollywood has four big releases in the IPL season. According to Prosenjit Chatterjee, "Despite the fact that IPL has its own audience, the craze seems to have taken the beating. Having said that, only those films are working that were meant to work." Prosenjit's 'Shankhachil' is doing good in the theatres. Kaushik Ganguly also has the same opinion. “There is too much of cricket these days. Movies, in comparison, are fewer. This season, theatres have been as packed as the Eden and no one is complaining," says the director who wasn't worried to release his film 'Cinemawala' during IPL.
