The hype surrounding Shivarajkumar’s Bairagee, which is slated for release on July 1, is already high. Producer Krishna Sarthak shared that the Vijay Milton-led commercial artist has already done some good business ahead of the release. “Satellite and digital rights have already grossed over `10 crore. Even the film’s Hindi dub rights were sold for a good sum. The kind of request I get from theater owners indicates that the movie is making big profits,” the producer said during a media interaction.

Fans are waiting to see the Tagaru combination of Dhananjay and Shivanna on screen. The directorial venture also stars Pruthvi Ambaar, Anjali and Yasha Shivakumar. Meanwhile, a big pre-release event is planned in Chamarajanagar, the hometown of Dr. Rajkumar. “There has only been one event held at Chamarajanagar attended by Dr Rajkumar, and this will be the second major event to be held there.

I have received more than 1000 messages from people residing in Chamarajanagar to organize the pre-release event, and I am going at their request,” says Krishna, who has also planned a special tour, which will start in Bengaluru and end in Chamarajanagar. “We didn’t want to lose the regular belt. So we plan to cover the area between Bengaluru and Mysuru, and make a stop at Bidadi, Maddur, Mandya and Mysuru where Shivanna and her team will meet their fans. We are also planning to go to Gajanur, the ancestral home of Shivanna before the pre-release event,” he adds.

Krishna Sarthak, who distributes the film under Jagadeesh Films, says Bairagee is a gift to Shivanna ahead of the actor’s 60th birthday, which falls on July 12. With music by Anoop Seelin, Vijay Milton also serves as director of photography.
