Screening of Puneeth Rajkumar's James will continue, says Bommai
Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has assured that the screening of late actor Puneeth Rajkumar starrer 'James' will be continued uninterrupted in the state.
Rumour has it that the movie will make for screening of 'The Kashmir Files'. A day before Karnataka opposition leader Siddaramaiah claimed that some BJP politicians and party workers are forcing theatres to screen The Kashmir Files instead.
Shiva Rajkumar, Puneeth Rajkumar's brother, met with CM Bommai today following media reports on the possibility of the Hindi replacing 'James'.
The film, directed by Vivek Agnihotri and starring stars Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumaar, Mithun Chakraborty, and Pallavi Joshi, has gained widespread acclaim and support. It was released on March 11 and has already broken records.
The plot of the film is based on the flight of Kashmiri Pandits from Jammu and Kashmir in 1990. Even after its first release, the film has generated a lot of buzz on social networks and has even been declared tax-free in several states
