Power star Puneeth Rajakumar, Darshan, Nikil Kumaraswamy won among stars, it is Rachita Ram clicking in first three months as her two films ‘Natasarvabhowma’ and ‘Seetharama Kalyana’ have done well in box office.

The expected films that bombed are Anuktha, Bazaar, Chambal, Udgharsha, Chaanaksha, Rajannana Maga, Yarige Yaruntu, Ammana Mane and a few others.
