Here is good news for the fans of Kannada's cultural icon Padmabushana Dr Rajkumar. After Satya Harishchandra, another black and white version movie of Dr Rajkumar is all set to get re-released in colour.
Distributor KCN Mohan, who owns the distribution rights of Kasturi Nivasa had taken the responsibility of making the black and white movie into colour. Kasturi Nivasa, which was released in 1971, was distributed by Mohan's father KCN Gowda.
KCN Mohan said, "It was my father's wish to convert many Kannada black and white movies to colour. Now his wish is coming true with Kasturi Nivasa. I hope the audience will admire the colour version of Kasturi Nivasa like Satya Harishchandra."
Apart from Rajkumar, Kasturi Nivasa also featured Jayanthi, Aarathi, KS Ashwath and Rajashankar in the significant roles. It was produced and directed by Dorai Bhagawan. Music composer GK Venkatesh had scored the music for the movie.
"Making a black and white movie into colour is not an easy job. It will fetch us the same cost in which we can produce another movie today. I have scheduled to re-release the colour version of Kasturi Nivasa on Dr Rajkumar's birthday, April 24," Mohan added.
