The legend International production house for the debut film 'Andar Bahar' invested Rs.7 crore so far and is high on recovery and having own release in over 100 plus theatres in Karnataka. It is slated for release in the first week of April. Earlier it was set for release on 29th of March. As Malashri 'Veera' a big budget cinema is also releasing the film 'Andar Bahar' starring Shivarajakumar and Parvathi is deferred by a week.
The team of 'Andar Bahar' is happy but the release of the film in the place where most of the producers hail is not becoming possible right now. Producers Rajaneesh, Prasad Rao, Ambarish, Avinash, Jagadish and Srinivas have combined in the first film but there is already break with Jagadish filing a legal case and sending a copy of it to KFCC. One of the producers of the film, Jagadish AS, has sent a legal notice to the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, saying that permission for the film (to be certified by the Censor Board) should be withheld. Jagadish has alleged that the other partners are suppressing the fact that he is one of the stakeholders in advertisements and publicity for the film.
The case filed by one of the producers Jagadish has been amicably sorted out producers Ambarish and Prasad Rao speaking to media persons at the briefing day of Legend International second film 'Bahaddur' at Green House Raj Milan.
On why the film 'Andar Bahar' release is not possible at USA from where most of the producers hail from Ambarish says there is lack of professional approach from Kannada stars. Ambarish made a general statement that even irked the media persons. Asked why they can't start the new theory of taking stars to foreign countries to promote Kannada cinema, it should have happened a long ago says Ambarish. All major languages reach out various parts of the world but it is only Kannada film not getting right market share feels Prasad Rao.
Only Puneeth Rajakumar films run on the weekends but other stars of Kannada cinema should take up the issue of promoting Kannada films abroad feels Ambarish.
Meanwhile the happy news from 'Andar Bahar' is that the TV rights for Suvarna Satellite channel is sold for over Rs.2 crores. The audio down loading of the debut music of Jai Ho fame Vijayaprakash is going good.
'Andar Bahar' is the debut direction of Phaneesh.
