It was Appu’s wish that all Kannadigas especially the children shoould watch this movie, to make this possible, after having had discussions with the distributors, exhibitors and the film team, I have decided that the movie Gandhadagudi will be shown in all theatres from Monday 7-11-2022 to Thursday 10-11-2022 in single screen theatres for Rs 56 and multiplexes for Rs 112 all across Karnataka for all shows.
