Team Muniratna Kurukshetra awaits clearance from the election commission
Nikhil Kumar, who plays Abhimanyu, is contesting in the upcoming elections and the electoral code of conduct, prohibits promotion of candidates in any form
The challenges for mythological drama Muniratna Kurukshetra seems to be increasing every day. While most of the films face competition from other releases, the mega-budget multi-starrer has faced a new kind of problem. The film is under the compulsion to get clearance from the election commission to get a theatrical release. As Nikhil Kumar, who plays Abhimanyu, is contesting in the upcoming elections and the electoral code of conduct, prohibits promotion of candidates in any form.
“The film is made in both 2D and 3D and it has got delayed due to the extensive graphics. Now, we are ready with the product and as planned, I am very keen to release this April 1st week. But since Nikhil is part of our film, if I want to go ahead with the planned release date, I will have to lose out the entire Mysuru region,” Muniratna says.
Muniratna Kurukshetra, which also happens to be Darshan’s fiftieth film, was supposed to release last year in April in 2018. But, the project got delayed at the edit desk. A mega-audio launch was planned for March 23, and it will take place only if the film gets a clearance from the election commission.
