The wait is finally over. Kotigobba 2 starring Sudeep and directed by KS Ravikumar will hit theatres either in the third or fourth week of July. The film is in the final stages of post production and the first copy is expected by the first week of July.
The film is made in both Kannada and Tamil and will be released simultaneously in both languages. But since Rajinikanth's Kabali is announced to be released on July 15, Kotigobba 2 is likely to avoid a clash and release a week or two after that, sources said. The film has been made in Tamil as Mudinja Ivana Pudi. The audio of the film is ready and the film team intends to launch it in the first week of July. The most likely date is said to be July 3 subject to last minute changes.

Rebel Star Ambareesh is firm on resigning as a MLA. Sources close to the actor said he is not going to change his decision and will not suffer humiliation at the hands of anyone. KFCC president who has met Ambareesh today said, "He is upset not because he was removed as minister but the manner in which it was done.
He would have been happy to make way for newcomers but he was not taken into confidence when resignation from all ministers was taken before the Cabinet reshuffle. He is hurt by the humiliation meted out and not because of losing the ministry. He recalled that he had resigned as a MP for the sake of Carvery water for Karnataka and a MLA post was nothing in comparison for him." Ambareesh will also hold a press conference tomorrow to clarify his stand at Mandya

Don't mistake 'Golden Star MLA' as a film title. It could become a real life reality by May 2018. That is when the next election to the Karnataka Legislative Assembly will most likely be held. But why are we predicting an event two years in advance? Because we think there is a clear and very good possibility of that happening. You may wonder why Ganesh who is very busy with his work in Sandalwood with many films on hand would want to give it up and jump into elections and politics. Here is the scenario.
Ganesh's wife Shilpa is already a card-carrying member of the BJP. The party is hoping to return to power after losing the last elections. The BJP state chief who will be leading the party into election in 2018 is BS Yeddyurappa, the former chief minister.
Sources in the party say that it is keen that Ganesh become a candidate rather than his wife from the party. If these sources are to be believed, then the constituency from which Ganesh will contest is already chosen by insiders in the party! Sounds incredible. But in politics, as they say, nothing is impossible.
Ganesh has been seen along with his wife greeting BS Yeddyurappa but in his personal capacity and not as a party member. But when his wife is in the party, there are no chances for guessing that he would have a liking for some other party. That takes care of which party he will be supporting. Then coming to taking the political plunge, the party is said to be cultivating Ganesh and preparing the ground for his political debut, more importantly, election debut in the next Assembly elections.
It is not a secret that even in the last election, many political parties tried to rope in big stars. Shiva Rajkumar took part in the campaign on behalf of his wife Geetha Shivarajkumar. Actresses like Bhavana, Pooja Gandhi and Rakshita took the political plunge. The actors who were already in politics like Tara, Jaggesh and others were even more active. But all parties failed to rope in a big male star to contest the elections. There were said to be attempts to rope in three big stars by different political parties. Shiva Rajkumar, Upendra and Sudeep are said to have been approached to contest the elections. But all three did not bite the bullet. This time around, the process of trying to impress the actors has already begun. Ganesh is already a choice for the BJP. But as of now, he has stayed away from even commenting on politics let alone giving any hints on contesting elections. After Ananth Nag, Ambareesh, Jaggesh and Ramya, no big star has taken to contesting elections in Karnataka.
Will Ganesh be the next? We will have to wait for more than a year to find out.
