The biggest challenge in career for challenging star Darshan is doing this film in duration of one year and three months. I had 12 wigs and hundred plus moustache. Six days photo shoot I attended for this film. Producer Anand Appugol fascinated with Sangolli Rayanna has put up one lakh stickers for Autos. He is a great fan of Sangolli Rayanna. Seniors like Srinivasamurthy and Ramesh Bhat helped me in my stature and dialogues. We have shot with 2500 horses and two war scenes we have shot in Jaipur for 43 days.
