Santheyalli Nintha Kabira, which was scheduled for release on July 22, will now release on July 29, as there was a delay in getting clearance certificate from Animal Board.
The Shivanna starrer movie has been at loggerheads with the censor board as the certification for the movie was delayed. The reason given for this was usage of animals in the background, which requires a clearance certificate from Animal Board before the censor certification.
Even though the release of Kabali was quoted as a reason for postponement, the team cleared this in the recently held press meet. Shivanna expressed his displeasure towards the Animal Board and its policies, as it is becoming very difficult for a creative person to conceive what he has thought of.
As we all know movie is inspired from the biopic-drama film adapted from Bhisham Sahni's play 'Kabira Khada Bazaar Mein'. It is really after a long time that a star hero is working on movie which is based on novel/play. This should probably inspire other heroes to work on movies based on Kannada novels/plays.
Sanusha, Ananth Nag, Sharath Kumar, Vaishali Deepak and Sanjana are playing the important roles. Ismail Durbaar has composed the music which is already the talk of town because of its novelty. Naveen Kumar is the cinematographer.
Kumarswamy Pathikonda is producing this movie under Subramanya Productions. Producers are releasing the movie throughout the state with the help of Kishore Films, which re-released Om and Mythri.
Shivanna's first release this year - Killing Veerappan was also held with the same problem which was the reason movie was postponed by a few weeks. Team waited almost for a few weeks before they got clearance certificate.
