In 2012, Govindaya Namaha was released and Komal Kumar stood shoulder-to-shoulder with his brother Jaggesh, the comic genius of Sandalwood. The song in the film Pyarge Aagbittaite went viral and the film was declared a blockbuster.

Come 2014, Komal seems to be back, after the lukewarm reception of his last two films Pyarige Agbityate and Karodpathi. Pungidasa is his next release and Komal is sure that his latest will earn both goodwill and money. “Filmmakers who have associated with me have never gone back disappointed,” says Komal

Apart from Komal, a host of 39 characters add flavour to Pungidasa. The list includes Asma Badar in the lead role.

“Padmaja Rao, BC Patil, Sudha Belwadi, Tabla Nani, Sunil, Mukhyamantri Chandru, Sowcar Janaki, Rajendra Karanth, Chikkanna, Bullet Prakash are part of the ensemble cast. More than just a laugh riot, it will be a comical family entertainer. Since my films are also popular for its songs, I have ensured that the album will be a hit before its release,” he adds.

The actor gives all credit to director MS Sreenath for bringing the best out of him. “To work with a director, who has had successful projects, was definitely a great experience.”

But Komal seems to be convinced that the major chunk of his audience definitely comes from the small screen.

A few producers have come forward to remake Pungidasa in Tamil, which is yet to get confirmed.

Komal made an entry in Tamil with Aintham Thalaimurai... starring Bharath and Nandita directed by LG Ravichandran.

“This is a guest appearance done for friendship. The film is distributed by Kavithalaya banner.
