A little while ago, Vikrant Rona producer-distributor Manjunath Gowda addressed the media in Bengaluru about how the technology that the film has adopted for its release. Manjunath was joined by a representative of CineDubs, the app that will allow audiences to watch the film in the language of their choice in 5.1 Stereo.
Manju, of course, was also quizzed about the release plans of Vikrant Rona, since he is distributing it in the Karnataka region. As of now, Vikrant Rona will release in close to 420 screens in Karnataka, with the maximum number going to the Kannada version. The producer-distributor also added that the focus would be on pushing the 3D version in as many theatres as possible, provided they are equipped for it. The issue of 2D version playing in a theatre like Urvashi in Bengaluru, for instance, he explained, is because they are awaiting delivery of the requisite glasses for 3D viewing, which are being sourced from abroad. He added that as soon the glasses are procured, Urvashi will start screening the 3D version.
As for the early morning shows that fans are eagerly waiting for, Manju confirmed that there will be 6 am shows, but a final decision on this will be taken tomorrow. Kiccha Sudeep, who is in Mumbai for the film’s pre-release event, is expected to return to Bengaluru tomorrow. He will then take off to Dubai for the Vikrant Rona red-carpet premiere. Manjunath said that Vikrant Rona will have premieres in 27 countries across the world on July 27, but didn’t confirm anything for Karnataka.
The producer was also quite gung-ho about the response to Vikrant Rona in the Telangana/Andhra Pradesh belt, even though there’s a Ravi Teja release too. Over 300 screens have been confirmed, which may make the Telugu version the biggest chunk of the film’s release plan.
