Ranna, Sudeep's new release that was running successfully for the last one week is facing trouble in about 25 theatres in Bengaluru, Kolar and few other places. The morning show on Friday could not be screened as there was no download of the film in these theatres. The licence approval to be given by the distributor had not been given sources said. When Chitraloka contacted distributor Balaram of Gokul films he confirmed the news but said he does not know the reasons why the film was not screened and why the license has not been given to some theatres in Bangalore, Kolar, Channapatna and other places.
Srinivasa theater in Kattaraguppe which had collected 7 lack share in the first week for the film could also not screen the morning show. Speaking to Chitraloka the theatre's manager Eshwar said we had issued morning show tickets and all of a sudden there was no download of the film to the screen. "We refunded the tickets. Now they have assured screening will continue from matinee show. This is a clash between the producer and distributor and we are suffering," he said.
The fight between producer Chandrashekar and distributors Gokul Films has resulted in trouble for the film. Sources say both want to release the film themselves. Meetings to solve the dispute between the two does not seem to have helped. But between these two the film is suffering.
