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.
