That was when the idea of Mungaaru Male came up. He almost spent one year writing the script. "Comedy Time," Ganesh liked the script very much, and he introduced producer E. Krishnappa, who eventually produced the film. and the rest is history. His film, Manasaare, received positive reviews from critics.
