Especially, he was unhappy with Golden Star Ganesh and they had a battle after their Munjane bombed at the Box Office.
However, the industry was not happy with his decision and forced S Narayan to return. Especially, Rebel Star Ambareesh and former Chief Minister and film distributor HD Kumaraswamy pressurised him to withdraw his resignation. Hence, he loosened his stand and returned to films. Well, the director is returning with bang through his forthcoming movie Appayya.
The first look of Appayya has been released. The posters have all the necessary ingredients of S Narayan film. A village backdrop, dhoti-clad hero and half-saree heroine are the regular elements in most of his films.
The story of the film has an interesting story. A stranger, on Bangalore airport, narrated the story and took Rs 25,000 for it. S Narayan has written the script for the movie.
After boarding a flight to Hyderabad, S Narayan felt that a good film could be made and started working on it.
Major part of the shooting has been completed but it is not clear when the film will see the light of day.
Appayya is made on his home banner and produced by his wife Bhagyavathi.
