Reliance Big Pictures, which is set to release Abhishek, Vikram and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer movie Raavan (Ravan), has filed a complaint against the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce at Delhi High Court questioning its rules. The film bosses of Raavan are approaching the court after the KFCC restricted them to release it in only 24 theatres in the state.
As per the norms of the KFCC, non-Kannada movies can be released in only 24 theatres. Following the rule, President of KFCC Basanth Kumar Patil had banned the screen of Kites in the state earlier for violating the rules of the local film industry. Now, Raavan is the latest victim of this rule.
The film is made in three different languages i.e. Raavan in Hindi, Raavanan in Tamil and Villain in Telugu. The Big Cinemas had asked KFCC to relax its restriction policy. It had also requested to consider it as three different films and allow the boss to release each version in 24 theatres i.e 72. But Basanth Kumar Patil had insisted on allowing only 24 theatres in the state.
Irked by KFCC's norms, Reliance Big Pictures has approached Delhi High Court. However, the case is being heard in Delhi High Court today. The viewers across the state, who are eager to watch the film, are quite curious to know the decision of the court. Should it be allowed to release in more than 24 theatres? Write your comments below.
