Producer Govardhan Murthy and director Ravi Srivatsa were in their elements on Friday, the day of launch of Maadesha starring Shivaraj Kumar. The muhurat held at Kanteerava Studios was a grand affair with Shivaraj Kumar fans making their presence in large numbers. And to make the proceeding interesting, there was high voltage cheering from the crowd all around.
Power Star Puneet Raj Kumar sounded the clap for the film and Ms. Parvathamma Rajkumar was present in the function to bless the occasion. Shivaraj Kumar shot for the muhurat shot in a different get up and hairstyle. In the media conference addressed later, Shivaraj Kumar said that he is making conscious efforts to look different in each of the roles and take on roles that are as diverse as possible. Maadesha is one film that has inspired him because of the story element and the characterization.
He said, 'I would say that this is a feel film like Jogi, but the comparison should end there. There are some fresh elements in the film on which Ravi Srivatsa has worked on. I am very happy with the way Ravi has created sequences in the film which show the fear complex of the underworld personalities. But the emotions expressed in the film are excellent. The fear of the characters is in the mere in the form of emotions expressed through the eyes."
Shivaraj Kumar said that he is acting in different types of films now. It is not that he is clinging to underworld based films only to get success. “My recently released films will reveal as to how I am making efforts to portray different characters. Gandana Mane was a sentimental film while Santha, which was, released much before this film, was a love story with the backdrop of underworld. My future films Lava Kusha and Sathya in Love would also be different' said Shivaraj Kumar.
Ravi Belagere, who is being seen more in films and film related activities, will also be doing another film this time. He was there in the press conference of Maadesha to announce that he is involved in the writing of the script of the film. He will also act in the film.
