‘BENGALURU UNDERWORLD’ RUNNING SUCCESSFULLY
Director Satyaa told reporters that the film has done away with the regular format which has been accepted by the audiences. He said media reviews were positive and that he had won support for the new attempt from the audiences and the media. He also said that he didn’t expect these kind of positive reviews from the media for the movie. He said his efforts are bearing fruits and Toogudeepa banner for distributing the film. He also singled Bhavana’s performance along with Aditya’s in the movie.
Bhavana said she wanted to experiment with such a character although she wasn’t game to be part of an action film. She said it is every woman’s dream to be a mother and she had the opportunity to portray that emotion on screen in the movie.
Payal Radhakrishna from Mysuru who debuted with this movie as the female lead said she was nervous but was confident about getting positive reviews. She said she is lucky to be part of a mass movie although her presence and length of her role isn’t quite significant. But, all the same, she said she is happy about her debut movie and is now game to accept more offers.
Rajavardhan said people were recognizing him because of the response that the movie has been drawing. Distributor Mallikarjun said he is planning to add more theatres from the coming Friday going by the initial response to the movie. He said Satyaa style and Aditya’s performance along with the background score had worked out positively for the movie. However, Mallikarjun did not disclose any collection numbers for the movie.
Aditya said Malik had won the love of the people. He said he saw the film with the audiences and added that the hard work is beginning to pay off before thanking the media.

He said the audiences will get a clarification in the second half to their doubts that come up in the first half. He said director Sathya is his mentor and he owed all his success to the director. Darshan said Majestic became a trendsetter then and now Bengaluru Underworld is meaningfully done and added that all roles are convincing and justified. He said Sathya is an artiste but he made his name as a director.
