Athade Srimannarayana is inspired by Malgudi Days

Sandalwood actor Rakshit Shetty's 'Athade Srimannarayana' is set for a grand release in 5 languages on December 27. Its trailer was launched yesterday in Bengaluru. Speaking on the occasion, Rakshit spoke about this movie directed by debutant Sachin.

He said, "This film has been a labour of love of three and is inspired by Shankar Nag's 'Malgudi Days'. The fictional South Indian town of Malgudi in the film is the kind that will have a pan-India appeal. We set up around 19 sets for the film and over 90% was shot on the sets in Bengaluru. The rest was filmed in Bijapur and the northern parts of Karnataka."

He added, "I dubbed for the Hindi trailer myself and with the voice suiting well, I'll dub for the film too. If we have managed to make this such a big release, it's because of the support of our producers. In the last three years, we had over 385 hardworking days of shoot. Director Sachin spent sleepless nights on this project. This one is going to be full of love, adventure, comedy and action."

The film was supposed to be completed at a budget of Rs 8 Cr. But it overshot the planned budget by several notches.
