With the release date of Ajith's 'David Billa' getting postponed, decks are clear for Karthi to sashay his way on to the centre stage of Kollywood box office. No less will be his sway in Telugu, as Bellamkonda Suresh is planning a mammoth release of 'Sakuni'.
It will see a worldwide release with more than 1000 prints. It is releasing with 400 prints in Andhra Pradesh, and considering the fact that it is a dubbed film, it is a big advantage for him.
The highest number of prints with which a Karthi film was released in the past was 600 prints.
While 'Saguni' in Tamil has a clean 'U' certificate, the Telugu 'Sakuni' has been given a 'U/A'. Both the versions will simultaneously release on June 22. Songs by GV Prakash have received a fair response in both the states.
Directed by debutant Shankar Dayal, the film has Karthi and Pranitha in lead roles with Santhanam for comic relief. It's a political satire with Karthi playing mind games, thus the title.
