Even before the release of the Telugu version of Jackie, Powerstar Puneet Rajkumar is gearing up to dub another movie in Telugu. His hit Kannada film of 2010, Prithvi, is now being dubbed in Telugu. The audio of the Telugu version has already been released in Hyderabad on 24th April. The movie will hit the screens in May.
Kannada movie Prithvi, which has been titled Prithvi IAS in Telugu, deals with the corruption and alleged mining in Bellary, Karnataka. The same problems are prevalent in Andhra Pradesh too. So the movie bosses think that the subject of Prithvi will surely impress the movie buffs in the state.
The music of Prithvi has been composed by Manikanth Khadri and the same has been dubbed in Telugu too. Telugu actor Tanish was the Chief guest at the audio release function of Prithvi IAS, which was held in Hyderabad on the birthday of late Dr. Rajkumar. Actress Parvathy Menon and director Jacob Varghese were also present on the occasion.
NS Rajkumar, who is the producer of Jackie in Telugu, is also producing the movie Prithvi IAS. He has planned to release Jackie in the last week of April. Sources claim that he has decided to release Prithvi IAS in the first or second week of May. If this happens, then both the films will surely clash at the Box Office.
