Issues over the release of the forthcoming Kannada movie, "U Turn," in Bhumika theatre in Bengaluru, which is a key centre for the film, have been resolved now. Director Pawan Kumar has confirmed that the film will be released in the cinema hall on May 20.
For the last couple of days, the distributor and the theatre owner were in disagreement over the screening of "U Turn." The exhibitor was unwilling to screen the Kannada movie and instead wanted to show the Telugu biggie "Brahmotsavam."
He had reportedly tried to cancel the agreement with the makers of "U Turn." However, now the issue has been resolved as per Pawan Kumar, who returned to India on Monday, May 16, after having the premiere of the Kannada film in New York.
He wrote, "Back home. Loved NYC.. n the festival and all the wonderful people i met. Now getting back to worldwide release this friday.. Everyone at the airport... the customs.. the immigration officer n then the cab driver asked me one question - theatre problem solve aitta saar..Dint know it had made so much news here.. Yesssssss.... Bhumika has agreed to retain U TURN. Now it is up to us fill it up...Thanks everyone for taking care of my film when I was away...[sic]"
The upcoming Kannada movie is a mystery thriller that has Shraddha Srinath and Dilip Raj in the lead roles. Roger Narayan, Skanda, Krishna, Pavan, Naveen, Divya, Pramod, Aarna, Kennedy and others are also a part of the cast.
"U Turn," which has been made under Pawan Kumar's newly-launched banner PK Studios, features Poornachandra Tejaswi's music, Satya Hegde, Advitha Gurumurthy and Siddharth Nuni's cinematography, and Suresh's editing.
