Hindi films are often blamed for leaving a very small number of theatre screens for Marathi films. The producers of both these films have made it clear that this time they have divided the theatres amongst themselves in such a manner that both films will get screens in theatres that are most important for their respective film’s business.
The producer–director of ‘Rege’ – Abhijeet Panse, presenter Ravi Jadhav and Ashwini Darekar, Mahesh Majrekar who essays a major role in the film along with the producer-actor of ‘Singham Returns’ – Ajay Devgan and producer-director Rohit Shetty were present at the event.
‘Rege’ and ‘Singham Returns’ that release on the same day; is considered to be a very positive development. Hindi and Marathi films share a healthy competition.
