As the festive season is upon us, Kannada industry is gearing up to add to the festivities with multiple releases. This week, the much-awaited The Villain will hit the screens.

The early show will be held at single screen theatres across Bengaluru and some parts of Karnataka, including Mysuru, Hubli, Hosapete. Previously, star-studded films have been slotted as early 4 am, but this is the first time that a screening will take place at midnight. “This is very rare,” says Prem, the director of the film.
