Leading Telugu producer Sai Korrapati is handling the distributions in the Telugu states. Hombale Films is self-releasing the Malayalam version in Kerala.
Five Languages + China Release
In order to promote the film and the Sandalwood Industry, the film will be screened in five languages, to accommodate audiences across the country! The languages are Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi. The filmmakers have done everything to ensure that language does not become a barrier between the movie and the audiences. What’s more is that the producers also have plans to make Chinese and Japanese versions of the movie!
The next biggest southern sensation?
Just the way Rajamouli’s Bahubali Franchise made Prabhas a sensation across the country, KGF could propel Yash to greater heights because of the script and performance. This would be perfect, given Yash’s meteoric rise in the Kannada film industry.
In 2000 Screens
According to trade reports, the film is likely to be out in 1,800 to 2,000 screens. The Kannada version alone will be out in 350 theatres, we hear. The film will release on December 20 in the US and Canada, and on December 21 in India. In Hindi, KGF will be screened in around 1,000 theatres while in Tamil it will be screened in 150 and Malayalam in 75. The Telugu version is expected to be shown in 350 theatres in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
In an age where people love to hate the CBFC, and there at least 5-6 cuts in every other movie, KGF has passed CBFC’s approval without any cuts!
