Puneeth Rajkumar, known as the greatest star of Kannada cinema, died of a heart attack in October 2021.
His wife Ashwini Puneeth Rajkumar said that “Gandhadagudi ” was the Kannada star’s dream project.
“The film was Appu’s dream project and he always wanted to do something in environmental conservation. The film received an overwhelmingly positive response from Appu’s fans and audiences in Karnataka and we felt it was a natural progression of the world to witness this beauty journey.”
“We are grateful to everyone who has supported us throughout the journey of this film. We have collaborated with Prime Video many times in the past and we are delighted that through our long-standing association we can bring Appu’s last film to his fans and audiences in the country on his birthday,” he said in a statement.
Director Amoghavarsha said “Gandhadagudi ” is a window into the invisible, mystical India and “shows a uniquely Eastern view of our relationship with nature”.
“As a country of over 1.4 billion people, there are still a large number of tigers and elephants roaming freely – and ‘Gandhadagudi ‘ tries to answer this conundrum.
“I am very happy that the audience will be able to travel with the saint and experience the never-before-seen miracles and a part of his true, raw self. I am happy that the documentary feature will reach a wider audience through Prime Video in the country,” the director said.
