Rishab Shetty's upcoming film Sarkari Hiriya Prathamika Shale - Kasargod will release on August 23 with a special celebrity show. The director, who has now turned producer with the film, has planned to release in a limited number of screens.

"We have planned to release SHPSK in about 85 screens. It will see the light of the day in about 40-45 multiplexes and around 40 single screens in the first phase. Based on the viewers' response, we will increase the screen count in the second week," Rishab Shetty said.

However, the team is not releasing the movie simultaneously in foreign countries. "It will be out maybe two weeks later. During Kirik Party we missed out the opportunity to understand the pulse of our audience in Kannada as we went to overseas. This time, we want to enjoy the moment with our viewers here," the director added.


Sarkari Hiriya Prathamika Shale - Kasargod is made with the budget of Rs 2 crore. Interestingly, the technical team has worked for the project without taking a single penny. "From music director Vasuki Vaibhav to editors, the crew has not taken a single rupee as remuneration," a source said.

The movie is about children fighting to save their school. Ananth Nag, Ranjan, Sampath, Pramod Shetty, Saptha Pavoor, Mahendra, Sohan Shetty and Prakash Thuminad are playing significant roles in the movie.
