During an interview, Venkatesh Maha discussed the type of films he would like to create, stating that he could make better movies if he put aside his ambitions for progress.
Director's Bold Claims

In his comments, he referred to a movie without naming it, in Part 1, where the hero's mother asks him to get gold and the hero liberates people working in gold mines.
Indirect Criticism of KGF
He went on to question whether the hero is not "a neech kameen kutha," meaning a scoundrel or dirty dog, for throwing away the gold in the second part, and whether the audience should be clapping for that kind of story.
Director Venkatesh Maha has refused to retract his comments on KGF despite the backlash from fans.
Standing by What I said
In a recent statement, he clarified that he apologized only for the way he communicated his opinion and not for the opinion itself.
