Director A P Arjun has finally fixed the date  for the audio launch of his film Raate on December 7. The film, starring Dhananjay and Shruti Hariharan, was shot over a long period, and now its release  has been delayed for unknown reasons.

However, the director doesn’t consider it as a ‘delayed’ project, but says a good product consumes time and so is the case with Raate.

“The film was shot in natural locations in the wild forest of Yellapur. Coming back to showing city life, we shot all the scenes amid a huge crowd in the city market. The crowd comprised our film’s junior artistes,” explains Arjun.

That has also brought in more natural expressions in the film. Even the heroine’s pimples are not covered up. The film is de-glam in its characters but commercial in its making,” he says, adding working with the team that he has done two films, Ambari and Addhuri, with has made it easier.

Meanwhile, Arjun has completed 50 days of the shoot for Airavata, starring Darshan. “My next schedule for Airavata starts on December 15. It goes on for 25 days, after which I will come back to release Raate in January 2015.”

Raate will be Dhananjay’s second film after Director’s Special. “I understand Raate is delayed, but the film has come out well, and so have the songs. I am eagerly waiting for the release, which I hear will be in 2015,” he says.
