It is Kannada actor-filmmaker Rakshit Shetty’s birthday today, and his fans who have been eagerly waiting for word on his next, Sapta Sagaradaache Ello have just got a pleasant surprise. Director Hemanth M Rao’s intense love story, which pairs Rakshit with Rukmini Vasanth and Chaitra Achar is now being presented as a two-part project, the release dates of which will be announced on June 15.
With Rakshit currently in the US, where he is spending time to fine tune the script of his next directorial, Richard Anthony, the official handle of his production house, Paramvah Studios, posted on social media, “This special occasion calls for a special announcement! Our #SSE will be releasing in two parts – side A and side B. The team has completed the shoot and will be anniouncing the release dates of both sides on the 15th of June.”
The accompanying visuals show that side A will be Rakshit and Rukmini's story, while side B will be that with Chaitra, in the 10 years later portion, for which the actor had put on considerable weight.
Prior to his US trip, Rakshit had told the media that Sapta Sagaradaache Ello would be a July release, as was teased in the second promo that came out in February this year, about the 10 years later portions of the narrative. He had said that the team was targeting Muharram, which falls on Saturday, July 29, so July 28 was considered the tentative date.
However, a few days ago, there were whispers in industry circles that Hemanth would not be able to finish work on the film in time for a July release, as the editing team had only finished half of it. Considering that the director shot for a whopping 137 days, there is quite a lot of material to sift through and instead of chopping it all up for a two and a half or three hour film, Hemanth has now given himself leeway to keep much of the footage and present a lengthier, more detailed story.
