With three of Upendra’s films set for release around the same time, the producers are fighting over which one will hit the screens first
Sandalwood actor Upendra is in demand. K Manju, producer of the Upendra-starrer Godfather has made the first move to get his movie released first and has written to the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce to allow the film on that front.Meanwhile, the Upendra-starrer Kataariveera Surasundarangi is scheduled to release on April 27 along with Puneet Rajkumar’s Anna Bond. But K Manju has raised an objection, saying that among the three films, his Godfather was started before Kataariveera… and Kalpana, the other film starring Upendra.
On the other hand, Muniratna, the producer of Kataariveera Surasundarangi, says he won’t succumb to any pressure and has decided to release the film on the scheduled date. “Just because Manju started the film first, doesn’t mean he has to release the film first. Though I began my film much later than his, I’ve finished on time. I don’t know when others are going to release their films, but I have decided to release Katariveera… on April 27th in more than 150 theatres,” Muniratna said.
