Kadaisi Bench Karthi (Tamil): Featuring ‘Spyder’ star Bharath in the lead, this light-hearted comedy has been directed by Ravi Bhargavan and was originally supposed to hit screens earlier but could not because of the double taxation controversy facing the Tamil film industry. Besides Bharath, it also features Punjabi model Ruhani Sharma in the lead. Sometime ago, the director had revealed that the film revolves around how smartphones affect the romantic relationships of young couples.
Tiger Galli (Kannada): ‘Tiger Galli’ marks the return of noted filmmaker Ravi Srivatsa after a gap of nearly five years and is an action drama. Featuring actor Ninasam Sathish in the lead, it is likely to contain some pulsating action scenes and massy dialogues.
