After the muhurut no first hand information was available, the publicity for the film went on its own in the media circles.
To explain the progress made so far, producer of over Rs.50 crores ‘Munirathna Kurukshetra’ addressing the media it is nearing completion and film is set for release in March 2018.
It was Sahore Sahoe Suyodhara….song with hundreds of extras, elephants, horses with key attraction Duryodhana on sitting on Ambari was captured. In the third take the green signal was given. It is 2 D and 3 D cinema.
It is during Dr Rajakumar era we had seen the historical and mythological films. In Darshan career we saw historical film ‘Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna’. The ambition of making other languages to turn back at Kannada is happening from this film observes Munirathna Naidu.
Except Bheema role Danish Akthar all have acted in Kannada films, 40 percent is graphics, taking extra time was obvious. There is ‘Gada Yudda’ between Bheema and Duryodhana. As of now the work in super speed, it is March 2018 release says Munirathna Naidu.
Meghana Raj taking on Bhanumathi role – wife of Duryodhana is very happy for such a big offer with Darshan. The film is 50th film of Darshan is even more happy. Each shot is like panting. I have worked for 15 days. It is a role with lot of ego and head weight pointed Meghana Raj. There is a romantic song in this film she stated.
It is one ‘Punya’ to work in this type of film. Naganna a humble director explaining the 16 days climax the work out of Darshan starts from 5 am. He does gym for three hours and then prepare for shooting. We are doing on line editing, Bengaluru, Chennai, Mumbai, Kerala, Hyderabad graphic work is going on mentioned Naganna.
I would give first preference to mythological and historical films in future. This generation will not know the characters of epics. Darshan continuing his address stated that the shooting spot is like a prison. We are dubbing two times for this film. The work of Naganna and John Vincent is terrific. The courage of director in making this type of film should be appreciated. It is the cooperation we have to extend Darshan mentioned.
