Superstar Vijay or ‘Thalapathi’ Vijay as he is called in South India, was the first to release a hit movie during the pandemic in 2021. His Tamil action entertainer ‘Master’ was a blockbuster and so the expectations from his latest ‘Beast’ is sky high.
The trailer for the movie was released a few days ago and it only increased the excitement for the release of the movie.
Now, it seems the makers are also making sure they release the Hindi dubbed version of the movie in cinemas. The trailer for this will release today, April 5 at 6.00 PM and it reported that the trailer will be released by Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan.
For some reason, the makers have decided to not call the movie ‘Beast’ in Hindi. It will instead be titled ‘Raw’.
The Hindi version will be released by UFO Moviez. The CEO of Distribution and Film Services of UFO Moviez, confirmed this, stating, “We are looking at releasing Beast in the Hindi speaking markets in around 600-700 markets.”
Another interesting fact about ‘Beast’, i.e., ‘Raw’ is that it will release on April 13 or 14 and so it means that in the Hindi belt the movie will be clashing with the highly anticipated ‘KGF – Chapter 2’ as well as Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Jersey’.
It’s also important to note, that while ‘Master’ was a blockbuster it did not do well in the North. Likewise other dubbed movies like Ajith starrer ‘Valimai’ and Ravi Teja’s ‘Khiladi’ failed to bring masses to the big screens in the Hindi belt.
But Vijay is a known face and there have been successes in big screens for south movies like ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ and more recently Rajamouli’ ‘RRR’, so perhaps this is why exhibitors are willing to give ‘Beast’ a chance.
Of course, the fact that the song ‘Arabic Kuthu’ from the movie has become viral all over the country could be a brownie point for ‘Beast’.
‘Beast’ also stars actress Pooja Hegde, who recently starred with Prabhas in ‘Radhe Shyam’.
