It gives tough competition to another such sketch comedy show
Majaa Talkies on Colors Kannada. Vijay Prasad, the director of Silly Lalli and Sidlingu fame, directed Bengaluru Benne Dose. The spice added to the show is by the anchor
Arun Sagar. Arun Sagar is not only a terrific reporter but also a comedian, actor, and well-known artist. He gained much popularity after his stay at the house of Big Boss Kannada where he also bagged the position of the runner-up. His first movie “Bhoomi Geetha” achieved great success after winning the national award for the best environmental film. The cast of Bengaluru Benne Dose also includes Neethu, Nurse Jayalakshmi and Antony Kamal. Neethu is a famous film actress who has played many important roles in Malayalam, Kannada and Konkani films.
She was also a part of Big Boss Kannada Season 2 and Season 4. Nurse Jayalakshmi plays the role of Arun Sagar’s mother, and Antony Kamal is the chef of the house. Famous comedians like
Mimicry Dayanand, Shalini, Mimicry Gopi, and
Srujan Lokesh also have guest appearances on the show. In the first episode of Bengaluru Benne Dose, actor turned minister Ambareesh recalls his fun days with late artists Vishnuvardhan and Rajkumar. This episode being the first appearance of Ambareesh in any comedy show, attracted a huge audience. It was also Ambareesh's first appearance on the small screen. Thus, the show was affected primarily when actress Neethu decided to quit the program due to some aspects of the show that didn’t appeal her.
