Good and happy news for Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar’s fans across the world. Puneeth Rajkumar’s recent movie James (Kannada version), would be released once again not only at the theaters where it is being screened but also at more than 50 theaters. Arrangements have been made to screen the movie to enable audiences to hear dialogues of Puneeth Rajkumar’s in his own voice.
With Puneeth Rajkumar passing away before the movie James re-recording, director and producer had to approach Dr Shivarajkumar to dub for Puneeth Rajkumar. Now, Big Mantra, a software company, worked for five months to recreate Puneeth Rajkumar’s voice. The Kannada version with voice recreation is set to be released at theaters on April 22.
“I am very happy to work for James. I consider doing voice recreation for the movie James as a tribute to late Puneeth Rajkumar. A team of 20 people have worked on this project for five months. We have been working for Prabhash’s movie Adipurush but Prabhash has advised us to stop voice recreation process for Adipurush and work for Kannada movie James,’’ said Srinivas alias Pappu of Big Mantra.
James movie director Chethan has said that he has already discussed with Dr Shivarajkumar, Raghavendra Rajkumar and Ashwini Puneeth Rajkumar about voice recreation for Puneeth Rajkumar in the movie. “They are very happy and appreciated me. We are making arrangements to screen the movie with Puneeth Rajkumar’s voice (dialogues) on April 22. Arrangements are also being made to screen in Canada,’’ said Chethan.
