Mangalore: ‘The film won not because of one person. My entire team has worked hard day and night for this. Most of them make Tulu movies with love for the language, but they rush the release. It is a pity that even good movies are losing due to this. Therefore, there should be no competition during the release of the movie”.
Because journalist friends have stood by me and encouraged me at every stage of my life, the circus movie has succeeded in entertaining people at home and abroad. The investment made by the producers of the film has come back. Thanks to every viewer for this. Prasanna Shetty, who has written the dialogues for Girgit, Gamjal and Circus, is Bailuru’s Nai Spina. I have to thank them,” said Rupesh Shetty, director of Circus.
He was speaking at a success meet called after his directed and acted Tulu movie ‘Circus’ released on June 23 worldwide and became an unprecedented success.
Speaking later, Bhojraj Vamanjooru said, “I feel proud to talk about the film Circus. Because the movie is making a name not only in Tulunadu but also in the country and abroad. The cooperation of media friends is very necessary to win the movie. Similarly, the movie has won the love of the audience of all religions. Thank you all for that. The movie got a good name as a result of continuous efforts made by Rupesh Shetty team. In the same way, may all of you encourage all the upcoming Tulu films.’
Prasanna Shetty Bailur, who has written the dialogue for the film, said, “I am a small artist who came to limelight through Bale Telepale. I would like to thank Rupesh Shetty for recognizing me and allowing me to write dialogues in the film. Not only Mangalore but also Bengaluru Kannadigas are laughing at the comedy scenes of the film. Even if the language is not understood, the performance of the artistes has touched the people and it is due to Rupesh Shetty’s efficient direction,” he said.
