K Manju seems to be adamant on his stand on Godfather
release, as the attempts of Upendra, Munirathna and others to
change his decision have failed to come to fruition. Indeed, the
filmmaker choose to skip the audio launch function of Katari
Veera Surasundarangi (KSV), which was held on April
19 at Gayathri Vihar, to show his unhappiness over the KVS bosses.
Manju, who met Upendra and Munirathna along with other industry
members to discuss about the ongoing release controversy at Uppi’s
residence on April 19, walked out midway after he was suggested to
postpone his Godfather for at least three months. The
filmmaker, who is desperate to release his film before Katari
Veera Surasundarangi, was fuming when he left the place
claiming that he was not ready to compromise because his film was
been in the making since a year.
Later, Upendra called and requested him to attend the audio
launch function of Katari Veera Surasundarangi to cool the
situation and find a workable formula. But, K Manju opted out of
the event. Meanwhile, Munirathna has announced that he is going
ahead with his plans with a minor change. He has pushed the release
by a week due to the delay in the post-production works.
