The romantic action entertainer, Dalapathi, is slated for release on February 9th, confirm its makers. Starring Prem Kumar in the lead role with Kirti Kharbanda as his heroine, this Kannada movie is touted to be high on action and romance. The film is bankrolled jointly by Feroz Khan and Naveen under their banner Nam Cinemas and it is directed by Prashanth Raj. Incidentally, Naveen happens to be the directorâ€™s brother. Charan has composed music for this venture with Santhosh Rai Pathaje cranking the camera.
While the film is gearing up for release on February 9th, it will have a stiff competition at the box office as some biggies are also slated for release on the same day. According to sources in the trade, the filmmakers are trying to cash in on the long weekend considering the fact that it is Shiva Ratri that weekend and Valentineâ€™s Day on Wednesday.
Other movies that are scheduled for release on February 9th happen to be the Shiva Rajkumar starrer Tagaru, which has been directed by Duniya Soori. The film was supposed to release last year but was postponed for a couple of times for reasons best known to its makers.
Apart from this biggie, Chiranjeevi Sarja and his uncle Arjun Sarja will be clashing at the box office with their respective films Samhaara and Prema Baraha also planned for release on the same day.
Samhaara, directed by Guru Deshpande, has Kavya Shetty and Hari Priya playing the female leads while Prema Baraha is written, directed and produced by Arjun Sarja and stars Chandan Kumar, Aishwarya Arjun, Sadhu Kokila, and Rangayana Raghu. The film will mark Aishwarya Arjunâ€™s entry into the Kannada film industry and will be released in Tamil as well as Kannada.
