We know that Darshan is a favorite of masses. Whatever may be the box office result of his film, they end up doing well in small screens. This trend has now continued nationwide. The Hindi dubbed version of ‘Mr Airavata’, titled ‘Vardiwala – The Iron Man’ has a record breaking run on Youtube with the film currently being watched by 7.1 million viewers.
This is a record for a Kannada film. It has also beaten all the Tamil dubbed Hindi films. Only few Telugu films are ahead of this. However as Telugu stars are more popular on small screen, it is expected. But Darshan beating almost all southern heroes has shown how much mass love him all over India. He surely can expect more money for dubbed version of his films henceforth.
‘Mr Airavata’ was produced by Sandesh Nagaraj and directed by A P Arjun. Upon release, the film was a success, even though it did not impress critics. The other Kannada films that are doing well on Youtube are Yash’s ‘Masterpiece’ and Sudeep’s ‘Ranna’.
