Bodyguard is a remake of the Malayalam blockbuster of the same name. While the original version starred Dileep, Nayantara and Mithra Kurian, the Kannada version of the movie features Jaggesh, Daisy Shah and Spoorthi in the lead roles. The movie directed by Anand is produced by the actor's wife Parimala and Narasimhan.
On the other hand, Maduve Mane is a comedy entertainer, which stars Ganesh and Shraddha Arya in the lead roles. The movie is said to be loosely inspired by Bollywood blockbuster Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. But producer HA Rahman had told before that the Kannada movie would not be as long as the original and it was not a clean copy of the Hindi movie. It is directed by Sunilkumar Singh.
