Producer K Manju has insisted Munirathna to release the movie Katari Veera Surasundarangi after his film Godfather hits the screens. Both the Kannada movies feature real star Upendra in the lead and releasing them back to back would cause loss. So, Manju has requested KFCC to intervene to solve the issue.
K Manju has already spoken to Muniratna and requested him to postpone the release of Katari Veera Surasundarangi. But he had to approach KFCC when Muniratna refused to delay his film. The producer says, “It does not make sense to release the same hero’s films back to back.”
Meanwhile, K Manju has also expressed his disappointment with Upendra as he has kept mum on the whole issue. “What has also upset me is that Upendra has not spoken to Munirathna to solve this issue. He should have pushed for Godfather’s release first,” TOI quotes him as saying.
Muniratna has planned to release Katari Veera Surasundarangi on April 27, on the day when Puneet's Anna Bond will hit the screens. Talking about this clash, Manju says, “I will not release my film with Anna Bond on April 27. I will release it a week later, on May 3.”
