Here is a good news for all the Rangitaranga fans out there. The movie is scheduled for a re-release worldwide, very soon. Director Anup Bhandari confirmed this on his twitter account recently.
The movie will complete one year of theatrical run in a few multiplexes of Bangalore on July 3. It will be re-releasing on July 1. A surprise from Anup Bhandari for the audiences is the 25 new scenes that will be added; a few unwanted scenes will be trimmed.
Anup Bhandari, while speaking to a leading daily, has said that there were a few good scenes which were not included in the theatrical copy to keep the run-time in control. He felt that the scenes were very good and audiences needed to watch those as there were a few confusions around the climax of the movie.
So with these extra scenes being added in the re-release, he is sure that all the confusions will be cleared and all the questions answered.
This announcement came on the occasion of Rangitaranga completing 50 weeks of theatrical run, which is rare for any movie of any language in the current scenario.
Rangitaranga will re-release in 25 odd screens of Karnataka, apart from the screens where the original version is still running.
The international cut will be released in the overseas countries like USA, UK, Europe, Singapore, Australia. Rangitaranga was big hit in USA when it released there last year.
Sai Kumar, Director Anup Bhandari and Hero Nirup Bhandari were in USA to promote the movie which resulted in fantastic collections for the movie, which is highest for a Kannada movie till date.
Also when the movie completes 1 year of theatrical run on July 3, Anup Bhandari and Nirup Bhandari will announce the details of their next project.
