Movie distributor Manju says that `Aithal wants to run Mahesh Babu’s Telugu movie Bramhotsavam in Bhoomika. Because of this they want to remove our U Turn movie and make way for Telugu movie. Bengaluru KG Road theaters are run by Kannada persons only. When Aithal had paid advance one month back then why did he make agreement with us. At any cost we wont leave this theater since we have already made enough of publicity. More over Aithal is not screening any other Kannada movie but making way for Telugu Movie which cannot be tolerated.
Bengaluru KG road theaters is known for Kannada Movies. Now the fate of a Kannada movie here is fight for a theater in KG road with other language movies run by Kannadigas!
TheNewsism predict: Nowadays some money minded Theatre Owners from KG Road, Completely Neglecting Kannada Movies and giving their screens to other Language movies like Telugu, Tamil, Hindi etc, and government should take action against these kind of Owners.
