Bhargav Arts Products can be said as the banner that made Balakrishna a force to reckon with at the Box-office. “Muddhula Krishnaiah” is the second hit film for Balakrishna on the banner. Some people in the film fraternity thought that the film had many crass dialogues (“Bhoothula Krishnaiah’) and wanted to have a ban imposed on the film. They lodged a complaint in Madras Film Chamber of Commerce during the films 5th or 6th week run. But the film withered the controversy and ended as one of the top-grossers of the year (1986).
