Mysore: Ours is a big budget movie, and we miss the chance to watch half the movie. KP Srikanth, producer of ‘Salaga’ has said that the film has not yet been released.
Talking to reporters in the city on the background of permission from the government to open the cinema, the film was not released for half the audience. It’s OK to let the movie open. But we are disgusted with not giving half the audience. Our cinema is a big budget cinema. Half the audience is allowed to watch the film and lose it. It is against this backdrop that a full-scale theater will be opened on the open.
We had a meeting Monday from the Active Producer Team. The team includes producers of films such as Robert, KotiGobu, KGF and Yuvarat. The decision of everyone to sit down together. What film should be released is the decision of Madhiva. But half the audience is not enough for big budget movies. We can release the film only when we have full permission. He said that online platforms (OTT) platforms are not suitable for big budget movies.
