Tabala Naani, who became popular with the movies like Mata
and Eddelu Manjunatha, was taken into custody for 20
minutes at Parappana Agrahara central jail. During the shooting of
Sanju Weds Geetha, the jail authorities had punched a seal
on all the members of the production team for identification. When
the seal was not seen on Tabala Naani's arm, the jail authorities
did not allow him to go out.
Director Nagashekar had told Tabala Naani to erase the seal when
a scene demanded it and he removed the mark after getting
permission letter of the concerned authorities. But it created
confusion at the end of the day and for which he was not allowed to
go out by security gaurds. At last producer Vijaya Kumar interfered
and resolved the issue by showing the permission letter. Actors
like Srinagar kitty, Avinash, Rangarayana Raghu were also present
on the shooting spot.

Weds Geetha. It also features Harish Raj, Tabala Naani,
Avinash, Rangarayana Raghu in the supporting roles. This film is
actor-turned-director Nagashekar's second directorial venture.
