Mr. 420 film distributor Naga Prasad is not unduly disturbed over the fact that his film produced by Sandesh Nagaraj and starring Golden Star Ganesh is competing with a hugely budgeted historical film like Kranti Veera Sangolli Raayanna starring Challenging Star Darshan.
"Darshan is also closer to me. I had made an outright purchase of his film Chingaari and released the film in number of theatres to show the stamina of the Challenging Star. Now, I will be releasing Mr. 420 on October 19, the same day on which even Kranti Veera Sangolli RaayannArtsa is being released. I think there has been a number of Holidays in the next two weeks which will be beneficial to all the Kannada films releasing this week including Prajwal's Gokula Krishna. I want all the Kannada films released during the festival days to win in the Box office' says Naga Prasad who is releasing the film through Narasimha Arts. Distributor Basha is releasing this film on behalf of Narasimha.
Prasad does not think that Mr. 420 is being released in a huge competitive environment. He feels that the Holidays and the fact that Mr. 420 is a non stop comedy entertainer is sure to help the film to attract the audience.
Kranti Veera Sangolli Raayanna is a hugely budgeted film and certainly our film can not be compared with it in cost terms. And the recovery probability of Mr. 420 looks achievable if the film runs well in the Holiday period. We are releasing the film in some select well maintained theatres and I am sure family audience will fall for this full length comedy film' says Naga Prasad. Sandesh Nagaraj, the producer of Mr. 420 had maintained that he has offered the film for free distribution for Naga Prasad in a press meet held earlier for the film.
