Yash and Srinidhi starrer KGF chapter 1 releasing on Dec 21 with Zero in five languages but ritesh sidhwani thinks that there is no clash between both the movies
“I don’t think it is a clash or a fight for the space. I think there is enough space. The reason we’re coming on the same date is because it is an important festive date for south and we’re releasing in four different south Indian languages. We couldn’t have delayed it.”
“We’re not aiming to go as wide as ‘Zero’ in the north Indian market. So there will be no clash.”
Excel Entertainment, known for commercial Hindi drama films, such as ‘Rock On!! 2’, ‘Raees’, ‘Fukrey’ series, ‘Gold’ and many more, is now backing up ‘KGF’ which is a Kannada film. Sidhwani says cinema has overcome the language barrier.
“As long as the story is engaging, there will be some emotional connect to it. As long as the film connects with you, emotionally identifies with you, I don’t think language would be a barrier,” said Sidhwani.
An action period drama based on Kolar gold fields, it is written and directed by Prashanth Neel and produced by Vijay Kiragandur under the banner Hombale films. The film stars Yash and Srinidhi Shetty in the lead roles.
It is slated for December 21.
