“‘Sala Budhar Badla’ was released in Western Odisha two years back. The movie made a record by running six weeks at a stretch in different halls. It was also planned then that the movie will be released across Odisha,” said Mohapatra.

“However, the outbreak of Covid-19 shattered our plans then. But now we have made a fresh makeover of the movie with sound mixing and Odia language dubbing. The movie will hit several halls across India in March. Hopefully, people will like the movie with authentic Odia cultural flavor,” Said Mohapatra.

“Now the subtle barrier between art movie and commercial movie has been broken. People have now started loving only ‘good movies’. Hopefully, Odia people will shower their love on ‘Sala Budhara Badla’ when the Odia dubbed version of the movie will be released across Odisha,” said the producer of the movie Kumar C Dev.
