It is going to be a big box-office clash in Sandalwood on the 27th of September this year! Two of the most-awaited films – Bharaate and Geetha – will be hitting the marquee on the same date. The makers of Bharaate had finalised the date much earlier while team Geetha also decided on the same date and made the announcement recently.
Bharaate, starring Srimurali in the lead and directed by Chethan Kumar, will have nine villains. With the story requiring nine baddies to fight it out with the hero, the makers picked out some of the best actors from the industry. While it is said that the film will be a family entertainer, reports about the nine villains has raised the curiosity levels among movie buffs. Produced by Supreeth under his banner, the film has Sreeleela playing the female lead. The star cast also includes Saikumar, Ravi Shankar and Ayyappa Sharma playing pivotal roles. Bhuvan Gowda has been roped in to crank the camera for the film with Mohan B Kere taking care of the art department.
Geetha, starring Ganesh in the lead role, is directed by debutant Vijay Nagendra, who was an associate of director Santhosh Anandram. The film has three heroines in the star cast – Prayaga Martin, Parvathy Arun and Shanvi Srivastava. Reports indicate that Geetha is based on the Gokak agitation. The film is jointly bankrolled by Golden Films and producer Syed Salam. The technical crew of this film includes V Harikrishna for music and Sreesha Kuduvalli for cinematography. There is a buzz that the film will be released on the digital platform Amazon Prime. The rights have been bought for an astounding Rs 2.75 crore, which is the highest for any Kannada film to date.
