Govindaya Namaha would have created a record for being the first film to be telecast on TV within 100 days of its release. But a distributor has bought a stay on the telecast of Govindaya Namaha and it has now been postponed indefinitely.
As per the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce's regulation, any film can be telecast on TV only after one year of its release. However, not all producers follow this rule and many films have been telecast within a year of its release. But producer Suresh of Govindaya Namaha has entered into an agreement with a television channel, according to which the channel could telecast the film, whenever it wishes to and hence was scheduled on June 30.
However distributors Pasha and Janardhan who had purchased the distribution rights of the film had filed a complaint with the KFCC and had even moved to the court to stop the telecast of the film. According to the distributors, audiences will not come to the theatres to watch the film, if it is telecast on TV and that they would then have to face financial issues. The court has duly accepted the request and has ordered a stay on the film being telecast for another month.
