The preparations for the mega event of Century Star Shivaraj Kumar's Suvarna Mahothsava is in full swing now as the organisers are finding it extremely difficult to accommodate the large scale of fans and film industry personalities to get an invitation to watch it live.
K.P.Srikanth, the President of All Karnataka Shivaraj Kumar fans association along with M.S.Ramesh, the President of the Kannada film director's association along with Narayana, Bhaskar, Yogish Hunasur and other celebrated film personalities have been burning midnight oil to see that every thing goes on smoothly without any confusion. Srikanth says that it has been sleepless nights for him for the past one week, but he is energised mainly because he is personally seeing the way Shivanna is being idolised by his large number of fans.

Srikanth has been facing a heavy pressure from people known to him dearly who want to get a pass for this function.
