Excited producer-cum-director Yogaraj Bhat has revealed that his recently released movie Pancharangi starring Diganth and Nidhi Subbaiah in the leads, has broken the records of his second film Mungaru Male at its second week's collection at the Box Office. But he denied to tell the exact figures of the earnings of the film. He has all praise for the Kannada audience for the success of the film.
Now, Yogaraj Bhat is quite anxious to know whether the film would continue to rock the audience or not. The director exclusively spoke to Oneindia about the performance of Pancharangi at the Box Office. Here are the excerpts of Yogaraj Bhat's interview.
How is the response for the film Pancharangi?
It's tremendous. I had never expected that the film would do so well. It's gone beyond my imagination within two weeks and the credit for this success goes to the Kannada audience. I thank them very much for it.
Do you think that Pancharangi has broken the record of Mungaru Male?
Surely! Pancharangi has broken the records of Mungaru Male in first two weeks. But let me tell you a fact. I had only one film Mani when Mungaru Male was released. Audience did not know much about me. So the collection of the film was dull in the first two weeks. Gradually, the word of mouth boosted the collection. Whereas now I have four successful movies, which brought an immediate result for the earning of Pancharangi. But I'm very much anxious about whether the film would continue to play the magic as Mungaru Male did.
When will the film released oversees?
Mungaru Male was released in several countries and it had got good response. We've planned to release this movie in various countries too. Currently, sub-titling has completed. After third week, we will decide the release of movie oversees. I'm sure that like Mungaru Male, this film will also do well overseas.
Who is the distributor? How many countries will it be released?
Mano Murthy, the music director of Pancharangi, has good contacts in US and UK and he is planning to take the responsibility of release of the film in US and UK. Meanwhile, we have been contacted by two other media-cum-distributor, who will release the movie in Australia, Germany and Dubai. We've plans to release the film in several other countries.
It is reported that several producers are in talks with you for Pancharangi remake rights. What would you tell about it?
We've two producers from Tamil and Telugu film industries, who are now in talks with us for the remake rights. We'll come to a conclusion very soon and let you know.
