He further wrote in his note, “However, it pains me to inform you all that the movie did not have a proper multi-language release across India for contract/content delay issues, which also led to 360 Telugu premiere shows overseas being cancelled. I apologise to all Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Malayalam audiences and promise that after Karthikeya 2 it will be our next three upcoming films that will be in theatres in all languages perfectly finished and released on time. I also promise every Telugu movie lover who trusts me that from now on we will never compromise on quality, no matter what the pressures are and will only make sure a finished, checked and fantastic product is given to you all.”
