‘James’ releasing on Puneeth’s birthday (March 17th) is not new. But there were confusions that will the film definitely release on the above said date, as Rajamouli’s PAN Indian film ‘RRR’ has been announced to release on the very next day. But director Chethan has reiterated that the release date was fixed many months back and the film will definitely release on his birthday. Chethan has said that the film will release in five languages simultaneously on the same day.
Producer Kishore Pathikonda in a TV interview has said that he will talk to Rajamouli in this regard and request him to postpone ‘RRR’ a little further.
Recently, the makers of ‘James’ has released a special poster from the film on the Republic Day. Puneeth is seen in an army look in this new poster and the poster has already gone viral in social media, just few minutes after the release.
‘James’ is written and directed by Chethan and produced by Kishore Pattikonda who had earlier produced ‘Kabira’. The film stars Puneeth Rajkumar along with Priya Anand, Sharath Kumar, Avinash and others in prominent roles.
