My film will appeal to a universal audience-Rakshit Shetty

Popular Kannada actor Rakshit Shetty, who is best known for his films like Ulidavaru Kandante and Kirrik Party, is now coming up with his new film Avane Srimannarayana. Directed by Sachin Ravi, this film is releasing in five languages on different dates. The Telugu version, Athade Srimannarayana is hitting the screens on January 1. Popular producer Dil Raju is releasing this film in Telugu.

Talking about the film, Rakshit Shetty states that it belongs to a new genre called 'southern odd fiction.' Apparently, Athade Srimannarayana will be a mix of all the films which have cops and gunslingers as a backdrop. The film deals with a treasure hunt and the story takes place in the 1980s, in a fictional town called Amaravathi.
Rakshit said that the plot appeals to the universal section of the audience and that is the reason why he chose to release the film in multiple languages. He opined that with wider opportunities, content-driven regional films can do well across the nation and took the examples of Baahubali and KGF. Shaanvi Srivastava played the female lead in this movie.
