For the first time in the history of Kannada cinema a big function was organised where musical legends of the entire Indian film industry was honoured. The select few who attended the function were music maestro Dr. P.B. Sreenivos, Padmabhushan P.Susheela, S. Janaki and Dr. S.P.Balasubramanyam. Enterprising producer Venkatappa and talented music director K.Kalyan were also honoured. And Kannada film industry's best known lyricists Geethapriya and C.V. Shivashankar were also felicitated during the occasion. Tallam Nanjunda Shetty, President of the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce and Sa. Ra.Govindoo, Vice President of the KFCC were attended the function to wish the team.
The occasion was the audio album release of the hugely expected Kannada film Ganga Kaveri produced by Venkatappa. Dr. S.P.Balasubramanyam along with the other famous play back singers released the audio album which revived nostalgic memories about these well known singers. And not to be left out in his histrionic talents, S.P.B showed his other face of flamboyance on many occasions during the function.
All the musical talents were quite excited during the function and wished the entire Ganga Kaveri team and its young hero Akshay success.
It was a big moment for producer Venkatappa who had not bargained for such a big fanfare for this audio. The musical legends made all the difference in this function which can be described as the best organised audio release function in recent times.
Dr. P.B.Sreenivos had written two poems wishing success for Kalyan and the Ganga Kaveri team. Akshay was the centre of attraction with his new hair style and he was seeking blessings from all the people present in the auditorium.
