The movie will then travel to Singapore, Australia, and the Middle East among other countries. Ganesh, Bhatru and the team are now planning their travel to the US. An overwhelmed director tells CE, “I was happy to see ‘housefull’ boards in spite of heavy rains in Bengaluru. Now that the sun is back, we see more and more audiences coming in with smiles. I am thankful for that.” Apparently, there is an audience waiting abroad and they have already booked tickets for the shows. “It is only because of the demand that the distributors are planning to take it to as many screens as possible, and I am happy to spread the happiness,” he adds.
With all the popularity, will Bhatru keep the same style in his future scripts? “I have always gone by what I like and, to connect to the audience, I ensure that we have unique characters. Every film that wins over an audience is a rebirth for the director, likewise Mugulu Nage is a rebirth for me. Every film is a child birthed by the director, and then it goes to school "
