'Saindhav' will head to the theatres on January 13, 2024. And its long publicity campaign has seen Victory Venkatesh pitch the film's case to cheering crowds. Recently, while on a college campus to unveil the song 'Wrong Usage' among young students, the acclaimed actor tried to consciously generate viral stuff by getting chatty. "As a student, I was a backbencher. We backbenchers may not be brainy, but we have a heart. Lecturers should encourage us," Venky said in a lighter vein as the Engineering students filling the auditorium clapped and hooted.
Venky has never been this enthusiastic while promoting a movie in years. In the pandemic phase, two of his notable movies ('Narappa' and 'Drushyam 2') graced the OTT directly. Since they bypassed a theatrical release, Venky had no chance to interact with fans by actively promoting them.
'Saindhav' is his first action drama hitting the theatres in years. Its box-office success will make Venky all the more relevant. Director Sailesh Kolanu's actioner is replete with shoot-outs, chases, gun violence, and more. The Sankranthi release surely has the potential to surprise with excellent openings, given the genre.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Shraddha Srinath, Baby Sara, Mukesh Rishi, Jisshu Sengupta, Arya, Ruhani Sharma, and Andrea Jeremiah are playing different roles. Santhosh Narayanan (music), S Manikandan (cinematography), and Garry Bh (editing) have worked on the movie. Venkat Boyanapalli of Niharika Entertainment has bankrolled this one.
