BANGALORE: Nowadays, Priya Hassan is the most disappointed heroine in Sandalwood. The bubbly actress, who is supposed to bask in the glory of her film Bindaas Hudugi’s success at the box office, is mulling to approach Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) for a redress.
What prompted Priya to approach the KFCC?
“I had put up a lot of efforts and money to make my second film Bindaas Hudugi, which is being screened at Triveni theatre. The film is doing well at the box office. Now, I was told that the same theatre is allotted to screen Chiranjeevi Sarja and Kruthika starrer Chiru,” says Priya.
What is Priya’s future course of action?
“I want to discuss it with the distributor of Bindaas Hudugi. Later, I will register a complaint to the KFCC against the theatre management. My film has collected more than rentals of the theatre for the last two weeks, despite the rain. I expect its box-office collection to improve within a few days. I had already paid the theatre rentals for two weeks in advance. I do not know why the theatre management wants to withdraw my film,” complains Priya.
She claims that Bindaas Hudugi has been received well in Mysore, Mandya, Hubli and other important cities across the state. “I am very happy with the encouragement from audience in North Karnataka and other cities including Bangalore. I hope that the theatre management will cancel its plan and continue the screening of my film,” says Priya with a ray of hope.
It is not the first time that Priya’s film is facing problems with the theatre management. Incidentally, her earlier film Jamabada Hudugi was released at Triveni theatre more than an year ago. Priya was compelled to shift it to Sapna theatre after two weeks of screening. It completed screening of more than 100 days at Sapna theatre.
If her effort to convince the Triveni theatre management to continue with the screening fails again, Bindaas Hudugi is expected to shift to Sapna theatre by next Friday.
