The glitzy event started off around 7 PM. The fans, who were at the place before time, went crazy when they saw their real star. People were blowing whistles and cheering for Uppi. The function got excited as soon as singer Hemanth Kumar crooned 'Preethse Preethse', which was followed by actress Richika Singh's dance performance. Musician Rajesh Ramanath also entertained the audience with some rock music.
Upendra entered the scene by saying 'I like it' from the film Rakta Kaneeru. Soon he was joined on stage by his wife Priyanka Upendra, son Ayush, daughter Aishwarya, musician Harikrishna, director Yogaraj Bhat, producer Dheera Rockline Venkatesh and Madhu Bangarappa.
Speaking on the occasion, Upendra said, “ I am overwhelmed to see such a huge response for the audio of Super and more over I am thankful for the fans, who have come here to wish me. Audience have given the movie title Super and now its up to them to make the movie a super hit."
Taking about the music team, Uppi Said “ I have got a wonderful team. I know Harikrishna from past 10 years. He has given some wonderful tunes. People always credit me for bringing out some best musics. But it is music directors, who have often given their best for my films. In fact, I have done nothing. He also praised Yogaraj Bhat for penning 'Sikkapatte' song." In return, Yogaraj said “ we are following the footsteps of Uppi sir. He is our guru and I am a big fan of him."
V Harikrishna said “ I am grateful to Uppi sir for giving an opportunity to work with him. When he approached me I just gave him some tunes and luckily he liked them all."
“Uppi calls me anna (brother). He credits me that I helped him during his initial days in film industry. But in fact, it was Uppi, who gave me a break with Tarle Nan Maga.", V Manohar said when Upendra recalled the incident, when they were working under director Kashinath.
Rockline Venkatesh said “ The team has worked really hard and finished the shooting on time. He also urged the fans not to entertain piracy".
Actress Nayantara did not attended the function for some reasons. But she was remembered by the movie bosses for her punctuality and dedication. The movie is all set to release this Friday (December 3).
