Although Vishnu is a little exhausted after the shooting Apthamitra 2, he said that he enjoyed the shooting. He said, "I really don't know whether I've completed 200 films or not. It's like cricket, where third umpire will decide the things." He added, "Some say that I've already completed 200 movies and other say that one more movie is needed to complete double century. Some others say that Aaptha Rakshaka is the 200th movie."
Vishnu further said, "For me, the success of the movie Aaptha Rakshaka is very important. The success must be celebrated by everyone those who have been with me for 37 years in my filmy career. I would like to dedicate this movie to the people, who have supported me in good and bad days of my life. "
He added, "the movie Aaptha Rakshaka has completed 80% of the shooting and it has come out very well. the audience those who have seen Apthamitra will definitely watch the movie Aaptha Rakshaka and those who have not watched Apthamitra will watch the movie after watching Aaptha Rakshaka. Apthamitra success was unexpected, but we have lots hopes on the movie Aaptha Rakshaka."
Vishnu is bit worried about the movie, but P Vasu's direction has made him forget his worry. According to him, Aaptha Rakshaka has come out even better than the original movie.
Actor Vishnuvardhan is busy with the shooting of his 200th movie Aaptha Rakshaka, which is a Apthamitra sequel. But the Sahas Simha is not at all worried about the numbers. Presently, P Vasu directed movie is being shot in Mysore Melukote.
