Pawan Kumar, the director of Sandalwood's critically acclaimed movie Lucia, seems to be facing a tough competition in the industry. The director, who watched the trailer of Ulidavaru Kandanthe, has requested the crew to postpone its release to next year.
Pawan Kumar was impressed with the trailer of Ulidavaru Kandanthe, which was released on Saturday, December 7. Director has also appreciated Rakshith Shetty and team for the wonderful attempt and predicted it will give tough competition for his movie Lucia if it gets released this year.
Pawan Kumar posted, "Team Lucia requests Rakshit Shetty and Suni to not release their epic film in 2013... pls don't take away our chances of winning some awards... i.e if any we may qualify for." Director is also happy for the experimental movies, which are making a huge buzz in Sandalwood.
He had also posted, "6-5=2, Dyaavre, Ugramm and now Ulidavaru Kandanthe. I am truly feeling so good as though they are all my own movies. Lucia trailer was 23.8k views in 24hours. UK is just about to surpass that... Yaayyyyyy."
TV 9 news reader Sheetal Shetty is making her on-screen debut with this movie. Apart from Sheetal, Ulidavaru Kandanthe also features director Rakshith Shetty, Kishore, Yagna Shetty, Achyuth Kumar, Tara Anuradha, Rishab Shetty and others in the significant roles.
