"Every penny spent on the big budget film will be visible on the screen. Puneet's fans are certain to have full meals of high entertainment," said Chandrashekhar.
The produce claims that the film's audio, released recently, has become a big hit.
Hansika Motwaani, who made her debut on big screen with Telugu film "Desamuduru" and later featured in Hindi film "Aap Kaa Surroor" opposite Bollywood singer-actor Himesh Reshammiya, plays the female lead. "Bindaas" is her first Kannada film.
