The new track crooned by Shreya Ghoshal is from the Sandalwood's
Kanasu, where the earlier version was featured on
Kannada's cultural icon Dr Rajkumar and Kalpana. Instead of
remixing the old song, Satish Pradhan, director of
Abhinetri, has re-arranged the lyrics to retain the melody
of the track.
"We cannot forget the melodiousness of the old track, and none
of the romantic songs in Kannada created that magic in later days.
Instead of remixing and disturbing the old lyrics, I decided to
re-arrange the lyrics and score the music. When we were in search
for a romantic hero for the song, Kitty sir's name came to my
mind," says Satish, who wrapped up the song shooting in two
"Commercial hero like Kitty sir would have demanded a bomb to be
part of the song, but he has not taken any remuneration for his
work. It is a friendly affair with the down-to-earth person," says
Pooja Gandhi, who is all set to make her comeback as
Abhinetri on Kannada screen.
