Avane Srimannarayana, Pogaru to clash at the box office on December 27
It's going to be a season of celebration for Kannada cinema fans with Rakshit Shetty and Dhruva Sarja both getting releases during the Christmas weekend
Looks like the year 2019 will end with a double dhamaka for Kannada cinema fans as two big films —Nanda Kishore's Drhuva Sarja-starrer Pogaru and Rashit Shetty's Avane Srimannarayana, which marks the directorial debut of Sachin Ravi — are both scheduled to hit theatres on December 27. This follows after the latter film's team announced their new release date.
The Avane Srimannarayana team, which had earlier planned to bring their film out by November end, have now postponed the release by one month. Rashit Shetty took to his official twitter account to announce this, adding that December 27 will mark the third anniversary his last release, Kirik Party.
