The release of Hatrick Hero Shivaraj Kumar is preceded by an unprecedented craze for the film which is getting released in around 200 plus theatres. The installation of Shiva statue in Santhosh is only an example of the craze that is developing among the Shivaraj Kumar fans to see and enjoy the film. Normally fans are also eager to know about the way the film has shaped up and they make some anxious calls to media persons and people of the industry involved.
But this time the confidence levels of Shivaraj Kumar fans remain at the top line and they seem to be hugely confident of the block buster status of the film.
"It has the big success written all over it' says Bhaskar who is also one of the producers of Andar Bahar, for which some shooting is to take place on 22nd and 23rd August. Since the shooting will be for the night effect sequences, Shivanna will have time to do pre release promotional interviews for the television and music channels.
Besides K.P.Srikanth who is cock sure of the film's success, if there is one member of the film unit who is predicting a big win for the film it is the film's heroine Raagini. "I am sure the fans would like my looks and dress sense in the film. I have taken care to select the best accessories to look glamorous in the film. My attire of Short dresses, casual dresses, dark glasses, jewellery and leather jackets are sure to attract the young brigade. I have never been so happy to see the level of craze for this film. But I promise fans that everything is worth it' says Raagini.
Though Raagini's new Malayalam film with Mammootty is all set to be launched on August 23, she has requested her Malayalam film producer to allow her three days time to report to shoot, as she has to do promotional programmes for the film.
Director Om Prakash Rao has combined with Shivanna, he has given hits like Simhada Mari and AK47. He has also delivered hit with other stars like Devaraj (Lock Up Death), Sudeep (Hucchcha, and Hubli) and Darshan (Kalaasipalya and Ayya). Om Prakash will be a different type of director when he makes films with top stars. This time he is sure to completed a hatrick of success with Shivanna' says an ardent Kannada film fan. '
Shivanna has not yet seen the film, as the film's producer Kanakapura Sreenivas is not in the habit of organising preview shows. But he will have a separate show to Dr. Raj Kumar family members may be on Wednesday or Thursday.
