It looks as if there will be a clash between two much awaited films Yogaraj Bhat's film Drama starring Yash and Radhika Pandit and Sumana Kiththor directed Edhegarike starring Adithya and Akanksha which may be released on Friday, November 23. As both the films are expected to be censored by next week, it is almost certain that both the films will take some time for promoting the film through the media to get ready for release which means there is a little time to accomplish this feat by next Friday.
Talking to Chitraloka Mega Portal, director Yogaraj Bhat said that the film's first print will be ready by November 9th evening or November 10. The censor formalities will be completed either on Monday or Tuesday, he adds. Bhat feels extremely confident about the film which he says has several layers in its narration. 'The songs have already become a big hit and I am extremely hopeful that the film will meet the same fate in Box office' says a confident Yogaraj Bhat.
Though producer Shankare Gowda is claiming that he would release his film "Varada Naayaka' starring Kiccha Sudeep and Chiru Sarja in lead roles, it now looks a little difficult to get the film ready for release on November 23.
Meanwhile the film's BKT area ' distributor Basha is reported to have told some city theatres to keep their screens ready for the release of the film on November 30, That could mean that the November 23 clash will be only between Drama and Edhegaarike.
