Some of the best films made by Lakshman and Gopal included “Bhale Huchcha”, “Bangarada Manushya”, “Bhagya Jyothi” and “Besuge”. Lakshman then went on to make films on his own including “Jimmy Gallu”, “Huli Hejje” and “Bandha Muktha”. “Bandha Muktha” was remade in Hindi with Amitabh Bachchan as the hero and was directed by K V Raju.

He served as the president of Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce for one term and president of the South Indian  Film Chamber of Commerce  for one term and an executive committee member of the Film Federation of India.
