Not all movies have the ability to change the direction in which industry is traversing. KGF Chapter 1 did that a few months ago with its humongous success as the whole country looked towards Sandalwood. A few more months and another flick-Avane Srimannarayana has all the attributes to repeat what KGF did to Sandalwood.

There are plenty of reasons why you have to wait for this movie but we have narrowed down the list to 8 compelling reasons. Also, revealing what is in store for us this August, we have exclusive stills from the movie for the first time ever on the internet.


1. Almost 900 days since Rakshit Shetty last appeared on the silver screen

With the kind of popularity Kirik Party gave to Rakshit Shetty, the talented actor could have been 2-3 films old since then. However, Rakshith has waited for the proper script and team and has then started his next after Kirik Party. Going by Rakshith’s knack of selecting good scripts and, Avane Srimannarayana is sure to be a winner.

2. The money invested in the product


Kirik Party made more than 16 times the invested money and widened Rakshit Shetty’s market. Hence, approximately 30Cr+ said to be the budget of Avane Srimannarayana. This amount can only lead to an impressive product.

3. The finest actors on one stage


Apart from Rakshit Shetty, Avane Srimannarayana boasts of an enviable star-cast. Shanvi Srivastava, Achyuth Kumar, Pramod Shetty and Balaji Manohar are all set to entertain us this August.

4. The combination of Sandalwood’s two music heavyweights

Charan Raj and B Ajaneesh Lokanath have individually established themselves as Sandalwood’s most in-demand music composers. Now, just guess how big the audio output will be when these two heavyweights work together for a movie. The result will be out this is just a few more weeks.

5. Retro Background

Retro Films have a special fan-following and also has the ability to impress the audience big-time. Huge sets and plenty of junior artistes are sure to create a surreal feeling for the audience. With Pushkar films, the banner which never compromises on quality at the helm, Avane Srimannarayana can actually give us a proper 80’s feel at the theatres.

6. Editor Turned Director

Sachin, who did a wonderful job as the editor of Simpleaag Ondh Love Story and Kirik Party is the director of this movie. In an age where engaging scripts are hard to find, an editor as a director will definitely help the movie become more crisp and entertaining.

7. Pushkar-Rakshit, the partnership which does not know the meaning of failure

GBSM, Kirik Party and a host of other successful films released as co-producers. Pushkar films is a reliable brand for quality output and add along with Rakshith Shetty, we can expect to be in for a treat in August. Pushkar Films should also be credited for the wave of new-age cinema in Sandalwood and with Avane Srimannarayana, this wave can be expected to climb one-step further. Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah knows how to make good movies and with so much at stake, Avane Srimannarayana is sure to make a mark.

8. Srimannarayana is going to arrive in 5 Languages

If you cannot follow Kannada, then do not worry. Avane Srimannarayana is going to release in 5 languages thereby spreading Sandalwood’s wings across the country.

9. One Big-Star actor in the movie whose name has been kept under the wraps

There is one secret which has been kept guard by the makers for a very long time. Another well-known actor, who is a star-actor himself, will be seen alongside Rakshit Shetty in Avane Srimannarayana. Keep guessing who that actor is going to be!
