Box office clash: Will it be Geetha vs Bharaate?

Sriimurali and Ganesh’s upcoming  films are expected to hit the theatres on September 27


Published: 20th August 2019

Looks like September 27 will see two of the most-anticipated Kannada films of 2019 clash at the box office. The Sriimurali-starrer Bharaate, directed by Chethan Kumar, and Geetha, starring Ganesh, which marks the directorial debut of Vijay Naagendra, are expected to arrive in the theatres on the same day.

While the team of Bharaate had announced the date a few weeks ago, the makers of Geetha are now said to have decided upon the same date. However, an official announcement will be made once the filmmakers get clearance from the censor board. 

Both the films have been creating a buzz since they went on floors. Bharaate brings a fresh combination of actor-director Srrimurali and Chethan Kumar. Produced by Suprith, the action-packed family entertainer features Sreeleela as the female lead, and consists of a huge cast including brothers Saikumar, Ravi Shankar and Ayyappa Sharma.

Geetha, which revives the title of Shankar Nag’s classic film of the 1980s, throws light on the Gokak agitation, which has been explored for the first time in Kannada cinema. Made under Golden Films in 
association with producer Syed Salam, the romantic drama features three heroines — Prayaga Martin, 
Parvathy Arun, and Shanvi Srivastava.
