On this occasion, Ram Shetty spoke exclusively to Mangalorean.com and said that for the first time in Tulu film industry, Bollywood’s special-effect and sound-effect wizards would make their debut and make their presence felt. “Tuluvas have played a major role in the success of Mumbai’s filmdom. It seems like just 15 years since I joined the films. But when I look back, I see I have done 45 films every year, either directing movies, directing fights, producing, or even training. There were days when I used to hop around six to seven shooting locales in Mumbai. I took more time than I should have to forward the interests of Tulu films. But I am back with a vengeance and I want the Tulu film ‘Bangarda Kural’ to have all the characteristics of a typical Hindi commercial film. A little bit of risk is involved in making every film but I am willing to take that for the sake of Tulu. It will be the first big-budget Tulu film,” he said.
Actor Shivadhwaj, Tamma Lakshman, Pradeep Chandra and Chanchalakshi were present at the media meet.
