Early life

Yogaraj Bhat was born on 8 October 1973, in Tiluvalli, in the Haveri district of the erstwhile Karnataka He was the youngest of Ramachandra and Jayalakshmi Bhat's seven children He lost his father to a boat mishap



When only Tamil and Telugu Film Industries were considered the southern film industry in terms of commercial films and when a Rs20 crore budgeted Telugu or Tamil film, grossing Rs30 crore was considered a blockbuster hit, a silent revolution took place in the Kannada Film Industry in the name of Mungaru Male That was the year 2006-2007 A sheer Rs15 crore budgeted movie grossed more than 70 crore, creating the biggest grosser in the Southern Film Industry

In 2007, People said it’s a record hard to break In 2016, people still have to say, it’s a record hard to break in Southern Film Industry

After his apprenticeship in the Television Industry for half a decade, where he learned the art of writing and directing, Yogaraj Bhat started his film career as an assistant to renowned cinematographer Shri SRamachandra, then moving on to assist world renowned Filmmaker Shri Girish Kasaravalli, and later the legendary filmmaker Shri V Ravichandran

His first film Mani is a critically acclaimed film, winning critics appreciation and Four State Film Awards The expectation from a newbie Filmmaker was immense His next film, Ranga SSLC was just an average in the box office

Mungaru Male, his third film, created history in Southern Film Industry

Mungaru Male Pre-Monsoon Showers ran for 464 days – first in any language to run for a whole year continually in a multiplex, beating the records of the biggest Hindi Film Industry records It naturally brought him many rewards, awards and appreciations, including Nine State Film Awards including Best Director and Best Film Award and Four Filmfare Awards Best Film, Best Music, Best Lyrics and Best Cinematography The movie has been remade in all South Indian languages & Bengali The rights for the movie to be made in Hindi has been bought by Shri Boney Kapoor

Overnight, he reached a reverential stage in Kannada Film Industry and managing his head on his shoulder was pretty tough a task for a man in his early 30s He did succeed in that and grew bigger by the day

From then on, he has directed eight films and has more often than not proven that Mungaru Male was not a fluke

His next Gaalipata - Was a runaway hit again and as records confirm, it ran for 45 weeks The movie won Three Filmfare Awards for Best Actor Ganesh, Best Music Director V Harikrishna and Best Lyricist Jayanth Kaikini

His next movie Mugulu Nage is in the pre-production stage After Mungaru Male and Gaalipata, this film will be a comeback to the duo Yogaraj Bhat and Actor Ganesh after 8 years This news has created a lot of buzz in the industry and audience
