The digitized version of Sivaji starrer Karnan is all set to explore more territories. The film will celebrate its 15-days of re-release and Chokkalingam and Shanthi Chokkalingam who spearheaded the digitization and re-release are all smiles. “Karnan is gaining momentum and more and more theatres are coming up to screen it not only in Chennai but also across Tamil Nadu,” says a beaming Chokklingam.
He adds that the reception has been good and it’s been receiving over-whelming response from Erode, Tirupur and Coimbatore. As the educational institutions will start their summer vacations soon, he expects that the film will do well in the coming weeks too. Mr Chokkalingam adds that talks are on to release the film in the US too. He says, “We are talking to Raj TV, who has got the rights for the film and soon the magnum opus will be released in the US. The film Karnan was released in 1964 and was one of the most expensive films of its times.
