Sources have said that the makers of the film have finally zeroed in on the release after several round of discussions. To cash in on the Varamahalakshmi festive weekend, they have decided to release Godfather. It is also said that the movie will have a large release like Uppi's recent movie Katariveera Surasundarangi.
If you can look back, the movie was in news a few months ago, when producer K Manju was desperate to release Godfather before Upendra's another movie Katariveera Surasundarangi. He wanted his movie to make it to screens before the Munirathna produced movie, as the former's movie hit the floors a year ago. However, their dispute ended in peace after both the filmmakers found a working solution.
The movie also managed to draw the audience attention after music director AR Rahman, who has composed the music for this movie, came to Bangalore to launch the audio album. The upcoming movie directed by PC Sriram is a remake of Tamil superhit movie Varalaaru, which starred Ajith Kumar. The Kannada version also features Soundarya Jayamala and Catherine Teresa.
