Deepavali Binanza for kannada film fans

Kannada film indusrty is remaking a Telugu film industry tradition this time rather than releasing films during Deepavali. Kannada movie indusrty has adapted it to its nativity by announcing the launch of multiple films just before the festival.

October 15 will see the muharat of many films. On Wednesday, the shooting for Ramesh Aravind’s new film "Inti Nimma Preetiya, Ramesh," will commence.

Puneeth Rajkumar’s Prithwi will commence shooting on Thursday. After so much of speculation its not Ramya who is pairing with Puneeth. Its Parvathy menon, who paired with Puneeth in the super hit Milana, is the leading lady of the film to be directed by Jacob Varghese.

Another big film launching that day is Shankar IPS which has Duniya Vijay in the lead. The film will be directed by M S Ramesh who directed the hit(?) Thakat with the same actor earlier this year. Vijay who played a guest role as a cop in Gelaya will be portraying a full-fledged IPS officer for the first time.

Shravana produced by veteran producer RTO Shivanna also goes on floor on Thursday starring Vijay Raghavendra.

Youngster Vishwas (of Jolly Days) will be seen in Kalgejje directed by first-time director Bangaru. School-girl Roopika is the leading lady.

For years it was during the festival of Varamahalakshmi that many Kannada films would be launched or released. This Deepavali bonanza may well turn out to be a new trend.
