Dhananjaya announces October 21 as release date for Head Bush, only days ahead of his milestone 25th, Hoysala
Will Hoysala's release be pushed ahead to give Head Bush more time at the box office?

Last evening, Kannada cinema’s Natarakshasa, Daali Dhananjaya announced the release date of his second home production, Head Bush. The film, directed by Shoonya, is based on Agni Sreedhar’s book on his time in the underworld, ‘My days in the underworld, and chronicles the life of Bengaluru’s first don, MP Jayaraj, with Dhananjaya playing the former gangster. Boasting a stellar star cast with names like V Ravichandran, Vasishta N Simha, Sruthi Hariharan, Paayal Rajput, Raghu Mukherjee, Yogi, among many others, the film, produced by Daali Pictures was announced as an October 21 release. “The first underworld don of Karnataka is on his way. #HeadBush releasing on October 21st 2022”, wrote Dhananjaya along with the announcement post.

Interestingly enough, Head Bush is being distributed by KRG Studios, which is backing the actor’s milestone 25th film, Hoysala. Dhananjaya’s second film with the production house, after Rathnan Prapancha, Hoysala was announced as a November 1 release, so while fans were excited about Head Bush’s release, it had them wondering why the films would hit theatres so close to each other. Head Bush is a two-part film. Could it be that the makers are okay with giving the first part only a 10-day head start over Dhananjaya’s milestone 25th film, or is Hoysala being pushed ahead? The buzz now is that Hoysala will look for a new date.

Dhananjaya, meanwhile, has a busy schedule over the next few months. The actor, who was last seen in Twenty One Hours, which marked his Malayalam cinema debut, has his film with Shiva Rajkumar, Bairagee coming out on July 1, Monsoon Raaga in August, Once Upon a Time in Jamaligudda in September, Head Bush Part 1 in October and, as of now, Hoysala in November. Navarasa Nayaka Jaggesh’s Thothapuri, in which Dhananjaya has done a pivotal character, will also release sometime soon.
