It is believed that the delay in the completion of the post-productions work of both Anna Bond and Katari Veera Surasundarangi is the reason behind the postpone. Raghavendra Rajkumar and Muniratha have sent notices to theatre managements for their change in plans. While the Puneet Rajkumar starrer film will be released on May 3, Upendra's film will see the light of the day on May 4.
On the other end, Munirathna has not solved the release date issue with K Manju, who wants to release his Godfather starring Upendra before Katari Veera Surasundarangi. However, several attempts made by the industry dignitaries have failed and if they do not solve the issue, there are chances of both the films featuring Uppi releasing simultaneously in the first week of May.
