The launch of Gandanamane audio album was an event to remember not only because Shivaraj Kumar shared his thoughts of playing the role of a Bus Conductor in the film, but also because producer R.S. Gowda proved to be a good singer on his own.
R.S. Gowda sung a few lines of the album's popular song Ah Ah Gandana Mane' in his melodious tone much to the surprise of the media men and his well wishers who had come to the audio release function. The film's director S. Mahendar, Story and script writer B.A. Madhu, Music director Madhu, Actor Tennis Krishna were also present during the function. Mohan of Anand Audio, the distributors of the album was one of the guests of the function.
The function which started much before Shivaraj Kumar's arrival to the function would have been a dull affair like many audio release functions these days, but for the above mentioned incidents and also for speeches made by V. Manohar and Mahendar.
Manohar may have encounted controversy because of his recent opinions on the Independence Day, but he was sober and to the point in his speech in this function. He said that Shivaraj Kumar has rendered play back in every film that he has composed music for the Hatrick Hero. He also added that the offer of Gandana Mane came to him even before Duniya became a big musical hit and when he was in dire need of films. Mahendar paid compliments to Shivaraj Kumar's dedication and producer Gowda's commitment in film making.
