T he Kannada-dubbed version of Tamil film Yennai Arindhaal will be released as Sathyadev IPS this week in 60 theatres all across Karnataka. But it has no takers in Bengaluru.
Krishne Gowda, who is for releasing the dubbed film, tells City Express that they had enquired with a single-screen theatre near Mantri Mall who had initially agreed to screen it, but later backed out. “The discussions are on with another theatre and we hope to release it in Bengaluru,” he says.
The first dubbed film to be released in Karnataka was Naanu Nanna Preethi, which was originally made in Hindi.
Krishne Gowda says he plans to release the movie on March 3 and is coinincidentally also a significant day because, 80 years ago, the first Kananda talkie film Sati Sulochana was released.
While another of Ajith’s films Aarambam is now going to the censors, Krishne Gowda says that he and the team from the Kannada Film Chamber of Commerce are seeking an appointment with director Rajamouli to discuss the possibility of dubbing the Baahubali 2- The Conclusion in Kannada.
