This is an underworld canvas love story film. Music plays a pivotal role and it is set in folk background. Eight months of home work is made for this film says Shivamani who has directed more than 20 films so far. Ramu Enterprises is like Mother to me explained Shivamani his previous connection with the banner. This is the second combination for Shivamani with superstar Upendra. He had directed Omkaara a few years back. There will be raw feel and realistic locations are hunt. I have taken 18 days to select the appropriate locations for this film says Shivamani. This is definitely going to create craze in the industry and I would work to reach that craze informed Shivamani. Gurukiran scores the music while Thriller Manju handles the stunts, and R. Giri is behind the camera. My track record is very clean and good answered Shivamani on the title controversy. That explained his commitment.
Producer Ramu known for very less talk is confident with his technical team. He made it very clear that his banner would not hurt the sentiments of anyone. For the culture and tradition of this state we would keep in mind while doing the films he promised.
I have immensely liked the hairline story said Upendra who appears in a different hairstyle in this film. He will be having two get up hairstyle in this film. After hearing the subject he told producer Ramu that he would adjust all the dates for this film. The story should not be revealed now. It should be watched on the screen. I am very optimistic about this film added Upendra.
The songs would suit the situations aptly. What is significant is the story of this film. For this love story I have high responsibility said No.1 music director of Kannada cinema Gurukiran. Shivamani added at this stage that music definitely going to be hit.
