One Kannada movie that set some new box office records for 2017 is Raajakumara. Starring Puneeth Rajkumar in lead role, the film was directed by Santhosh Anandram and produced by Vijay Kiragandur.
The film team very recently celebrated the 100 day success celebration at the Palace Grounds, Bengaluru. The ostentatious event witnessed many Sandalwood stars making their presence felt in the celebration.
The program started off with a lamp lighting ceremony, after which, many artists were honoured on stage for their service to the field of cinema. The stage was studded with many celebrities and stars.
The event was filmed and the telecast rights were sold to Udaya TV. Now, the channel has decided to telecast the show. So, what was the major attraction of the show? When will it be telecasted?
What Did Puneeth Rajkumar Have To Say?
"The name of the film itself is very powerful. I was scared and didn't think it would win. But, it became a super-hit and won the hearts of many people which has brought me unending happiness. Thank you for not letting down the name of the movie", said an elated Puneeth Rajkumar.
Kichcha Sudeep's Take On Power Star
Kichcha Sudeep, who had been on the stage during the event, spoke high of Puneeth Rajkumar. He remarked that Puneeth Rajkumar was one of the best dancers of all times in Karnataka. Having said that, Sudeep and Puneeth together danced for a song on stage.
Then, the song 'Aadisi Nodu..Beelisi Nodu' from the movie, Kasturi Nivasa was a blockbuster hit. That song was composed by G. K. Venkatesh for Dr. Rajkumar's movie.
Now, the same song has been tweaked according to the Raajakumara's story line as 'Bombe Helutaite'. This song has been composed by G. K. Venkatesh's blood relative, V. Harikrishna.
100 Days Celebration Felicitation
Vijay Kiragandur, the producer of the movie, distributed mementos for every artist and technician, who worked hard for the film's success. In addition to that, the profits of the film were equally distributed among the people who worked diligently for the film.
While Dr. Shivarajkumar took to stage to perform the number, 'Aadisi Nodu..Beelisi Nodu' from Kasturi Nivasa, Puneeth Rajkumar sang the song 'Bombe Helutaite' from Raajakumara. The two brothers performed a proper 'jugalbandi' on stage which was one of the main attractions of the event.
Apart from the main function, there were a few performances by some of the busiest heroines of Sandalwood. Among them who danced were Hariprriya, Karunya Ram and Kavya Sha danced to some peppy numbers to thrill the audience.
Glamour dolls of Sandalwood, Rachita Ram and Shraddha Srinath were present during the occasion too.
When Is The Telecast?
The 100 day success celebration of Raajakumara will be telecast on Udaya TV on this Saturday, July 22 at 8 pm.
