There’s a strong possibility that JHOOTHA HI SAHI may be postponed by one week. Slated for release next week [15 October], the film may now arrive on 22 October because music composer A.R. Rahman is yet to complete recording the background score of the film. Producer Madhu Mantena doesn’t rule out the possibility. “Yes, the film may get shifted to next week. It’s true that Rahman hasn’t completed recording the background score. Also, with two major films clashing on 15 October [AAKROSH, KNOCK OUT], there’s no point releasing on that date. Besides, the music of JHOOTHA HI SAHI is picking up and if we shift the film ahead by one week, it will only help the music to grow further,” Mantena states.
If JHOOTHA HI SAHI is shifted to latter date, Madhu Mantena will hold the distinction of releasing four films on a single Friday – JHOOTHA HI SAHI and the three versions of RAKHT CHARITRA [Hindi, Tamil and Telugu].

var iurl ='http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href='+document.location+'&show_faces=false'; document.getElementById('fblike').src=iurl; // ]]> Although animation films haven’t really made a mark in India, the fortunes could change for better with UTV, Karan Johar and now Ketan Mehta in the fray. Ketan Mehta, who has worked with some of the biggest names in the business like Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, is back after a sabbatical. And this time it’s with an animation film called RAMAYANA – THE EPIC, which has been directed by Chetan Desai.
This writer had an exclusive dekko at the first promo of RAMAYANA – THE EPIC and I wish to add that one is mesmerized by the stylized and contemporary manner in which the makers have narrated the story. Slated for release on Dashehra [15th October], the film will be released in six versions simultaneously across India – Hindi, Tamil Telugu, Marathi, Gujarati and Bengali. Hollywood giant Warner Bros. is distributing the film in India.
The first promo will be launched tonite [Thursday] amidst industry bigwigs at an event in Mumbai.
