Producer-Director Jai Jagadish and Film Designer Vijayalakshmi Singh had reasons to smile as the CD and audio release function of their new film Madana was a big success with the presence of many VIP's and a grand release by their favourite star Dr. Vishnuvardhan.
For Dr. Vishnuvardhan and S.V. Rajendra Singh Babu, two friends who have made several big films, it was a moment of fond memories and gracing through nostalgia. Dr. Vishnu had also time to seek blessings from Ms. Prathima Devi, mother of Vijayalakshmi Singh who still has a special liking for the Sahasa Simha.
The function was well organised with Lakshmi, the anchor of the show doing a fine job. Equally good was the way Jai Jagadish and Vijayalakshmi spoke in the function providing it with a classy touch.
Jai Jagadish described Dr. Vishnu as one of his great friends and was happy that his friend was releasing the album. "It should have been Ambareesh and Vishnu who should have been present this day. But as you know Ambareesh is busy now in Delhi after his new responsibility as a Union Minister. But now, Vishnu is representing him and also Ambareesh' said Jai Jagadish.
Even film director Babu remembered the great association with Ambareesh and Vishnu, both of whom were thick family friends. "We don't think them to be very big stars, though both of them are jewels of the industry. To us in the family, they are one amongst our own family. I am glad that Vishnu came to this function to bless the youngsters of the film and Jai Jagadish' said Babu.
Dr. Vishnu said that he is representing Ambareesh and himself and wished the couple a great success. He also said youngsters like Audithya and Sameeksha should achieve bigger things. "I wish the audio and film a big success' said Vishnu.
Audithya was happy to see his favourite Vishnu Uncle. "I was watching from the sidelines how he was acting in our productions as a young boy. Now, I have got an opportunity to work with him in "Kshana Kshana'. I am really fortunate. I wish that I get more such opportunities' said Audithya.
