Tamil movie “Saguni” was originally slated to release on 6 July. But suddenly “Saguni” (in Tamil) and “Sakuni” (in Telugu) release dated are advanced to 22 June 2012. It will directly clash with the release of Ajith Kumar’s BILLA II. It can noted that about a month ago, BILLA II release date was shifted from 15 June to 22 June.
First it was confirmed in twitter that SAGUNI got the censor certification today (9 June). Later SAGUNI’s music director GV Prakash twitted, the movie will release on 22 June.
GV Prakash is exited over the release the movie and is confident that it will do well at the box office. Especially he twitted that the comedy of Karthi and Santhanam will be riot to watch. It is expected the movie will do at the box office.
Karthi and Pranitha are the main leads in the movie along with Santhanam. The movie is a spoof on politics.
Karthi is establishing one of the top actor to watch out for and he has already delivered several hits in his short filmy career starting with “Paruthiveeran” in 2007 which won him several awards. His last outing was “Siruthai” which was moderate hit [the movie is remade in Hindi as “Rowdy Rathord”, a blockbuster hit at the box office].
Karthi is youngest son of yesteryear actor Sivakumar, and brother of Suriya who is already established actor in Tamil. Success of SAGUNI will put him in top league of South Indian actors. The movie is being released on 22 June in Tamilnadu and Telugu in over 700 screens.
