The debacle of the Tamil-Kannada bilingual film Charulatha at the box-office has hardly dented producer-distributor Hansraj Saxena’s never-dying spirits. Saxena has gone ahead and acquired the release and distribution rights of another film titled Sundattam on behalf of his Sacks Pictures.
Charulatha, which had the dusky & sexy Priyamani essaying double roles of conjoined sisters, was Saxena’s maiden venture as a distributor and exhibitor after he floated his own production house a few months back. The film was about two sisters who were born conjoined but are separated frome ach other through a surgery resulting in the death of one of them.
Despite a sleek screenplay and some wonderful cinematography, Charulatha has bit the dust at the box-office. Unfazed by the film’s no-show, Saxena has now acquired the release rights of Sundattam whose audio was released in the city this week. Saxena, who took part in the audio-launch held at the Sathyam Cinemas, announced that he was taking up the film’s distribution.
“I watched the only only the other day; I loved it very much and then decided to acquire the film’s releae and distribution rights,” says Saxena. Sundattam has Irfan, who starred in Pattalam and Eppadi Manasukkul Vandhai, playing the lead role in it. Aadukalam Naren has also played a significant role in the film which has been directed by Brahma G. Dev.
