Veteran actor J.K. Sreenivasa Murthy virtually spilled the beans about the delayed release of the hugely awaited film "Kranti Veera Sangolli Raayanna' in a special programme in Suvarna news channel. Charging some vested interests in Kannada film industry to have master minded a plot to prevent the film's release during the Holiday season particularly on October 19, the veteran actor who plays a special role in the film said that the delayed release will not in a way affect the film's collections.
"It is a grand spectacle to come on the Kannada screen. The audience will be surprised to see the film with such huge production values and technical extravagance. It is a film that will stand out for Darshan's performance as well as direcor Naganna's superb handling of the periodical film' said Sreenivasa Murthy.
Murthy said that several people in Gandhinagar have sent letters with fake letter heads to the Ministry of Animal Welfare and Animal Welfare Board alleging that elephants and horses have died during the shooting of the war sequences of the film in Jaipur. Naturally it was taken note off by the Animal Welfare Board. This has made them to be extra cautious which prevented the organisation to give quick approval of the application and many affidavits' he said. He also said that there were rumours in Gandhinagar that five elephants were dead during the shoot and the clearance will be further delayed for the film. In this confusing state many people had to plan the release of their films' said Sreenivasa Murthy.
Both Darshan and Naganna who were part of the programme said that no animal was harmed during the shoot and every animal was looked after with care. "I am myself a great animal lover. How can I see animals being harmed during the shoot' asked Darshan.
