It has become a habit to make sequel films in Indian language films. We had many sequels in the past in Kannada. To the list of sequels adds ‘Mungaru Male’ the best collector so far in the history of Kannada cinema!

A film by E Krishnaappa a realtor ‘Mungaru Male’ was in the direction of Yogaraj Bhat. Ganesh and Amoolya starred in that film. Diganth was in a special role of this film. The film entered the pages of history and also given breakthrough for music director Mano Murthy and lyricist Jayanth Kaikini. The release of ‘Mungaru Male’ in December end of 2006 was a slow pick up in the box office that later became a mammoth collector.

Now the executive producer of ‘Mungaru Male’ Gangadhar also a politician like producer E Krishnappa is contemplating on sequel of ‘Mungaru Male’. The sequel will not be directed by Yogaraj Bhat and Ganesh in the cast is only information available now.
