Fans of Balakrishna were hoping of a release date announcement at the audio launch of his 100th film Gautamiputra Satakarni.
We learnt that nothing is planned by the filmmakers. Although the film is in Pongal fray, the exact date is not yet finalised.
Speculations were rife that the team is eyeing a January 11 release, but producer Rajeev Reddy says they haven’t locked any date so far. “Right now, we are focused on the audio release of Gautamiputra Satakarni.
Once the event is done, we will meet all the distributors and zero in on a date. The film is definitely scheduled for a Pongal release but the exact date will be decided after the meeting,” says Rajeev Reddy. Directed by Krish, the film chronicles the history of the 2nd century Satavahana ruler Gautamiputra Satakarni.
Shriya Saran, Hema Malini and Kannada superstar Shivarajkumar are playing crucial roles in the historical drama. Music of the film is by Chirantan Bhatt.
