‘Raaj’ overseas release: Controversy worsens!

Posted on: August 25, 2009

The controversy over the overseas release of ‘Raaj – The Showman’ between the makers and the distributor seems to have taken an ugly turn.

Earlier, director Prem had announced that he would be releasing his film simultaneously in almost 40 centres overseas through Dr Kiran. Though the film was released all over Karnataka, the film didn’t get released in other centres due to various problems. Now that there is a negative feedback for the film, Dr Kiran has decided not to take the risk.

“My overseas coordinators say that there is no craze for the film. People have been really disappointed about the negative reports. If I release the film now, I know I will not recover even the cost spent on publicity and promotions,” says Kiran.

Director Prem, on the other hand, is furious about the film not releasing outside Karnataka. “Our main mistake was that we had not made any arrangements for the film’s release abroad as we thought that Dr Kiran took the entire responsibility of releasing the film abroad,” says Prem.

‘We really had a lot of people who wanted to release the film abroad. But our producers had talked to Dr Kiran regarding the distribution rights. So, I didn’t interfere in their business. I don’t accept that there is no craze for the film. 31 lakh people have watched the film in Karnataka in the first week. Many people from abroad are calling and e-mailing us about why ‘Raj’ has not been released there. How should I answer them?,” asks Prem.
