Today, when moviemaking is more a business, a film’s long run in theatres calls for celebrations. One such successful film is Dhurva Sarja-starrer and Chethan Kumar’s directorial Bharjari, which completes 50 days in 71 centres with 3,000 plus shows in multiplexes across Karnataka.
The film’s team including the actor visited theatres on Sunday and fans of Dhruva Sarja organised a blood donation camp to mark the occassion. City Express caught up with the actor, who sounds overjoyed. “I hope Bharjari sees another successful 50-day run in theatres and that is scores a century,” he says.
Meanwhile, rumours about Dhruva Sarja’s next project are rife that Pogaru is getting delayed and may even be shelved with Dhruva Sarja not liking its story. The actor replies, in a pat: “Every rumour about me only pushes me to do better. If you ask me what is my next, I would say Pogaru, though it is true that the project is seeing delays and there are reasons for it.”
He adds that he is in constant dialogue with the production team. “Whatever questions the audience have, I raise it with the filmmakers,” he says. “We need to give it our hundred per cent so that we don’t have to answer uncomfortable questions later. But reasons being discussed for its delay are wrong. I am preparing myself for the role sand do not want to talk much about it till the film goes on floors.
