Diamond Star Srinagar Kitty's second home production Tony is all set for the release on August 9. The movie, which features Aindrita Ray in the female lead role, is made with the budget of Rs 4.50 crore. It is releasing in over 125 screens.
Tony is directed by Jayatheertha of Olave Mandhara fame. Srinagar Kitty, though being busy with the promotions of the movie, made some time to speak to the Oneindia. Here are the excerpts from the interview:
Is There Any Commonality Between Ambareesh-Lakshmi's 1980s Tony And Your latest movie?
Ambareesh had produced and starred in the 80s movie and I have starred and produced my latest movie Tony. The afore-mentioned factor and the title are only common things between the two movies.
Tony Has Two Music Directors And Nine Songs...
There are five full-length songs. The remaining are played in bits and pieces, which are folk songs. Tony, at parts, portrays the richness of our culture, folks and villages. Hence, we have used those bits in the movie to have a better impact.
Raghu Dixit has crooned a song and has acted in the same. Sadhu Kokila has composed the number. V Harikrishna has scored music for one song. Three music composers have worked in Tony and songs are getting good response from audience. I believe songs are like an invitation for people to watch the movie and I hope the tracks in our movie have reached to the maximum.
