Darshan, known as the Challenging star in Sandalwood, has, true to his moniker, come up with a challenge for his fans. Ahead of the audio launch of Darshan's Muniratna Kurukshetra on July 7, the producer had distributed passes which did not have a picture of the Yajamana actor. The star's fans were upset and expressed their displeasure on social media. Darshan, in a video message to his fans on Facebook and Twitter, said, "You call me a celebrity, but each one of you is a celebrity to me. Kurukshetra, even though is my landmark film, is a mythological drama that consists of an ensemble cast - including Appaji (late Ambareesh), Arjun Sarja, Ravi Chandran, Srinivas Murthy and Nikhil. Irrespective of who is part of the film, I request all my fans give equal respect to all them."
He also goes on to mention that a film like Kurukshetra was a big challenge and praised producer Muniratna for pulling it off. "Don't just look for which actor's posters are released, and whose cut outs have been put up. Request you all to come with the family members, and watch the characters -- Duryodhana, Arjuna and Karna. This is my challenge to you all. Let there be no fights, and request to watch the film with love." he said.
Muniratna Kurukshetra, directed by Naganna has music scored by V Harikrishna and is slated to be released on August 9. However, as we had reported yesterday, the production house is discussing of advancing the film to August 2 and a decision on this will be taken in a couple of days.
