The two much anticipated movies of Sandalwood - Kiccha Sudeep starrer Maanikya and Rocking Star Yash starrer Gajakesari was expected to release on Ugadi festival, which was considered to be the biggest clash at Karnataka Box Office. But the release date of both the films were postponed as they were awaiting to clear the hurdles from Central Censor board.
Later rumour mills were doing rounds in Gandhinagara about both the two movies to clash their release date on April 25th 2014, but now Sudeep has opened up and cleared all the speculations around his movie clashing with another film.
Answering to one of the tweet from his follower, Sudeep has said that his movie Maanikya won't clash with Gajakesari. Sudeep's follower on Twitter posted, "I think manikya and yash's gajakesari will clash each other,so it will acts as a negetative fact to manikya film." Sudeep then replied, "we surely ain't clashing n if u think it's gonna be negative to us then I guess they deserve th best. cheers."
Beside directing Maanikya, Sudeep is also playing the lead role with Crazy Star Ravichandran, Ramya Krishna, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar, Sadhu Kokila and others. The movie is the remake of Telugu hit Mirchi, which was released in early 2013 with Prabhas, Sathyaraj, Nadhiya, and Anushka Shetty in leads.
