Shivaraj Kumar's Shiva is creating
strong positive waves across Karnataka. The movie, billed as the
biggest movie in Shivanna's career, has broken the record of
Darshan's Chingari in terms of number of screens. The buzz
is that the movie is releasing in 225 screens in the state.
The latest paper ad on a leading Kannada daily shows that Shiva
is releasing in 225 screens. It means, the upcoming movie will have
a much-bigger release than Chingari, which holds the
record for hitting the maximum theatres in the current year. The
Darshan starrer film had released in over 175 screens.
However, the interesting point of the story is that the massive
release of the film has surprised Tamil superstar Vijay and he has
wished Shivaraj Kumar good luck for the success of the movie.
Meanwhile, Santhosh theatre in Majestic is getting ready for the
big release of Shiva, as Shivaraj Kumar's huge cut-out has
been placed before the theatre on Sunday (August 19). The
celebration began with the fans performing abhisheka (cleansing
with milk) to the cut-out.
Shiva, which has cleared the censor test with 'U/A',
features Ragini Dwivedi in the female lead role.
The movie is directed by Om Prakash Rao.
