"Akasa Kusum" Comes to DVD in February 2010

The domestic DVD release of "Akasa Kusum (Flowers of the Sky)" is set for mid-February 2010, through Torana Music Box. Director Prasanna Vithanage revealed that the DVD release will feature a newly remastered version of the film, complete with 5.1 surround sound.

The disc will also contain bonus features, including a 'Making-Of' documentary, deleted scenes, trailers and the Akasa Kusum music video. The film ran for 77 days in Sri Lankan cinemas last year, to critical and popular acclaim.

Meanwhile, Vithanage is also busy with a special Tamil dub of the film, on which he is currently working in India. This version is to see a special limited release in Sri Lanka in April, in time for the Sinhala & Tamil New Year. "Akasa Kusum" star Malini Fonseka has been acclaimed internationally for her performance in the film winning numerous awards in the international film festival circuit.
