Makers suggests that it took two years to complete the legendary film
Late Kannada superstar Rajkumar's 1971 classic Kasturi Nivasa has been digitally restored in colour, says producer K.C.N. Mohan, who is planning to release the film in August in cinemas.
Mohan is the son of K.C.N. Gowda, who originally produced the film.
"My father wanted to release Kasturi Nivasa in colour and when he started work on it, he unfortunately passed away. I've taken up the responsibility of releasing the colour version of the film in digital format. We plan to release it in August," Mohan told IANS.
"It took us two years to complete the film and give it a new look. It was extremely challenging because you have to look into every frame, convert it from negative to digital format. Songs had to be converted into digital as well. It was like making a new film," he added.
Directed by Dorai-Bhagavan, the film tracks the story of a generous man and the problems he faces due to his generosity.
The film also features Narasimharaju, Balakrishna, K.S. Ashwath and Jayanthi in lead roles.
