Power Star Puneet Rajkumar's new film Vamshi to be produced under Vajreshwari Combines banner by Ms. Parvathamma Rajkumar was launched on Monday, March 24 at the Sadashivanagar residence of Movie icon Late Dr. Rajkumar. As has been the practice in all Puneet's films produced under the home banner, it was Crazy Star Ravichandran who clapped for the film. Prakash is the director of this film which will have music by Mano Murthy. Krishna Kumar is the cameraman.
The muhurath was attended by a large number of Kannada film industry representatives who wished the team's crew a big success. Tallam Nanjunda Shetty, President of the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, H.D.Gangaraj, Former President of the KPCC, Sa.Ra.Govindoo, Vice President of the K.P.C.C., well known film directors S.Narayan, Naganna, Prem, Shivamani, P.Sathya and most of the current producers like Ramesh Babu, Soorappa Babu, Gurudatt and many others were present.
Talking to the media later director Prakash said that the film has a strong emotional content with the mother and son sentiment taking main focus.
'We also have grey shades of underworld in the backdrop and a love element which forms part of the story. I have just developed a line that was in my mind and now the entire script is ready with the dialogues. We are shooting for the film starting from April 25. We are yet to finalise the heroine of the film and we have just selected Lakshmi to play the role of Puneet's mother in the film. We have made sure that this story does not have any shadow of other son and mother sentiment films that have been seen by the audience. The presentation will be fresh and Puneet will be seen in a different role in the film. Even I have not dealt with an underworld related subject so far and it will also be a new experience for me to handle such a subject. The film will have its quota of action sequences and entertainment elements to please Puneet's fans' said Prakash.
Raghavendra Rajkumar said that when Prakash told Vamshi's story line in the beginning, it was not sinking in him perfectly. "I had told him to look for other stories, but finally after discussing many story lines we did come back to this story which was developed further. It will be a different type of film for Puneet and Prakash who are dealing with such a subject for the first time. But it is not correct to brand a director in a particular type of films. My father always felt that a director should not be branded and he should be given opportunities to direct different type of films. Prakash also felt that he needed to move out from the type of films he is making' said Raghavendra Rajkumar.
Parvathamma Rajkumar said that she has heard the story of the film and was impressed with it.
Power Star Puneet Rajkumar said that he has trust in Prakash and the subject is as much fresh to him as for the director.
