Bangalore is known as a city where non-Kannadigas outnumber Kannadigas. Aptly named the garden city, it attracts large numbers of people from all over India to come, work and settle down there. But do they watch Kannada movies? The answer would be no. Unlike Tamil and Telugu films which have large audiences among people who speak other languages, Kannada films never had that privilege. Actor Shivraj Kumar has put forward a new idea to attract the large number of non-Kannadigas in the city to attract them to Kannada films.

Shiv's new idea is publicizing the films in English. He opined that this may attract huge crowds of non-Kannadigas who reside in Bangalore. The posters, trailers and important information about the film should be provided in English. This way, Kannada films will reach more people and earn more. It was during the audio release of his Paramesha Panwala that Shivraj Kumar came up with this unique idea.
