Shahrukh Khan's Jab Tak Hai
Jaan has taken the nation by storm and it has affected the
collections of Kannada films in Karnataka on release day in few
places in the state. But it could not stop the dream run of
Kranthiveera Sangolli Rayanna in North Karnataka (NK).
Yes, on Tuesday (November 13), the release of Jab Tak Hai
Jaan was overwhelmingly welcomed by people in Mysore,
Bangalore and Mangalore, which affected Kannada films including
Kranthiveera Sangolli Rayanna. However, in places like
Hubli, Bijapur, Gokak, Haveri, Belgaum and other regions of North
Karnataka, there was not much impact on the Darshan's film.
In fact, the Diwali festive season turned out to be a wonderful
time for Sangolli Rayanna, as it made wonderful business
during the holidays. A source says, "People thronged into theatres
to watch Sangolli Rayanna in the last few days and the
number of screenings were increased to meet the demand. Though
Jab Tak Hai Jaan has also got good response in North
Karnataka region, it did not affect, as people in this regions were
more interested to watch the film made on their son
However, in Shimoga, Bhadrvarthy, Tumkur and Chikamaglur,
SangolliRayanna's collections were affected by
Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Meanwhile, in places like Bangalore and
Kolar, due to other language films, the business of Sangolli
Rayanna has slowed down.
