People are accepting and ready to take on a courtroom drama. A subject like this is a progressive sign. (I am) Keeping my fingers crossed,” Ragini told IANS.
“Considering the response we have got from the trailer, I trust that we will have a great opening when the film premiers on the OTT platform.

“Prajwal has done more than 30 films in the Kannada film industry and he was recalling his debut that happened 10 years ago. Even he had that feeling of nervousness before the release of his debut film. While he is very excited and happy, he was telling me how privileged I am that the film is releasing on a digital platform with a reach of 200 countries. I agree. It is really a good fortune for me that in the digital era, my debut film is getting such great exposure. But the most excited and enthusiastic person is my father-in-law (veteran Kannada actor Devaraj).
