Director Nanda Kishore is on tenterhooks, with his upcoming directorial Bruhaspati starring Manoranjan is set to be the first film to hit the screen in 2018.
The director, who is eagerly awaiting his film’s release, says, "Though Bruhaspati is just another Friday release, there is a lot of expectation because it will be the first Kannada film released this year. This has added to the pressure."
