With 60 plus films released in the first half of 2013 and many crashing in the box office the launches in Kannada filmdom have not stopped.
Like every year the 'Ashada Masa' fear grips the Kannada film makers. From 20th June till 5th of July 2013 nearly 15 films went on the floor and there are a few more not disclosed to the media.
From 7th of July the Ashada Masa begins and prior to that launching and then continuing with shooting is the thought of most of the producers.
On 20th June 'Shuba Vivaha' went on the floors at Kalyana Mantapa in Bidadi. It is by new producer and debutant director. 'Urvashi'(Bharat Sagar and 3 heroines) by producer Venkatesh, Vasundhara (TS Nagabharana director) by producer Najnappa were in this month of June 2013.
The films like Ice Pice (Rangayana Raghu, Neethu and Sindhu Rao, Bhagyaraj (Mahesh and Jahnavi Kamath, Production No1 (Sandesh as hero), Bahuparak (Srinagara Kitty and Meghana Raj), E Kempe Gowda Nagara, Missed Call (Raj Kiran), Patharagitthi (Srikanth and Prajwal Poovaiah), Kanji Pinji (Dancer Vijay and Deepika Das), E Hrudaya (former bureaucrat K Shivaramu), Pungi Daasa (Komal Kumar) Shambo Mahadeva, Ghooli Hatti (film with five heroes) are the other launches took place before Ashada Masa - the month of 'Ashada' is considered as imprecise for the launches.
