Kannada film industry is in crisis again. The non-Kannada movies
like Nanban(Tamil), The Businessman (Telugu) and
other movies, which are releasing this Sankranthi, have got most
number of theatres to screen in Karnataka and that has left with a
very meagre number of theatres for the Sandalwood movies.
Srinagara Kitty's Ko Ko and and Yogish starrer
Sidlingu are being troubled by non-Kannada movies. In a
joint press meet, the producers of both the movies expressed their
anguish for not getting enough theatres for the native films. They
urged the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) to intervene
and help them to get theatres for Kannada films.
Apart from Nanban and The Businessman, two big
movies like Vettai (Tamil) and Bodyguard (Telugu)
are also hitting the screens. It is said that Upendra postponed
Aarakshaka, which was earlier announced to be released on
January 13 to January 26 due to the unavailability of theatres.
