The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) has intervened to resolve the rift between producers Munirathna and K Manju over the releases of their upcoming movies Katari Veera Surasundarangi (KVS)-Godfather, where both the movies star Upendra. It has found a temporary solution for their controversy by telling them that the movie that gets censor certificate first will be released this month.
K Manju approached the KFCC asking them to halt the release of Munirathna's Katari Veera Surasundarangi, which is hitting screens on April 27. In his request, he had claimed that his Godfather has to see the light of the day first, as it is in the making for over 12 months and KVS has to be delayed. On hearing the versions of both the parties, the chamber said that the movie, which gets censored first will be released this month 27th and the other film has to be delayed for four weeks.
Katari Veera Surasundarangi directed by Suresh Krishna is the first full-length 3D Kannada movie, which also features Ramya, Ambareesh and Muthappa Rai in the lead roles. Whereas, Godfather is the remake of Tamil film Varalaaru and it features actress Jayamala's daughter Soundarya, Catherine Tresa and Bhumika Chawla.
