Reports say that several Tamil groups have called for a ban on Nagarahavu and its Tamil version Shiva Nagam. The Tamil movies in Karnataka have been unofficially banned for the last one month and the latest incident is seen as retaliation.
Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are at loggerheads over the Cauvery water sharing issue. The theatres in Karnataka are not screening Kollywood films fearing attacks from the pro-Kannada groups.
Coming back to Nagarahavu, it is said to be a landmark film in the Indian film industry as it gets the credit for bringing a late actor back to life on-screen. Using high-end technology, the portions of Sandalwood matinee idol Vishnuvardhan have been created. For just about 9-minute screen presence, the makers have shelled out Rs 15 crore.
After nearly two years, Ramya is back with another film —Nagarahavu. As if that wasn’t enought to make the movie special, the film also sees the late Dr Vishnuvardhan, albeit in a digitally-remade avatar.
Everyone knows that Vishnuvardhan and Tamil superstar Rajinikanth were good friends, and the Thalaivar even remade his friends film Apthamitra in Tamil as Chandramukhi. Now that the late star will be seen in another film, sources have revealed that his old friend, Rajinikanth, will watch the movie today.
