The name of the film was that of a well known cricketer, but the audio and CD release function did not attract any big names.
The producer Sandesh Nagaraj, Music Director Rajesh Ramanath, lyricist Ram Narayan and director M.S. Rajashekhar were present in the function. The audio was released by a steward of the Atria Hotel, while Sandesh Nagaraj's little grand daughter was there to release the CD.
Velu of the Lahari Audios said that his company is now entering into the film audio marketing scene in a big way and this is the first step in that direction. "Now, we felt that the audio scene is getting into a phase of stability with all the players in the market understanding the demerits of taking huge risks. Even the piracy level is coming down. Therefore, we thought good products will move faster in the market. Incidentally, Ravi Shasthry is based on Tamil Hit Idhu Namma Aalu and we had then released the audio album of that film at that time' said Velu.
Sandesh Nagaraj expressed his happiness over the work done by film's director M.S. Rajashekhar and music director Rajesh Ramanath. "Fourteen years ago I handed over the mantle of director's job to M.S.Rajashekhar when I started producing films. He made a good work in that film Mannina Doni and ensured good success for me. I am sure the history will repeat and even Ravi Shashtry will do well in the Box office. My confidence on the film has been boosted as just a day before I have watched the film and I feel satisfied about the way Rajashekhar has worked for the film. Rajesh Ramanath has also worked wonders with his good compostions' said Sandesh Nagaraj.
Sandesh Nagaraj said that Ravi Shasthry was completed in 28 days and most of Ravichandran's films which are made within a short span have achieved bigger success like Ramachari and Ramakrishna. I hope Ravi Shasthri will achieve a big success' said Sandesh Nagaraj.
Director Rajashekhar said that Ravi Shashtry is a product of hard work and team spirit.
