Jolly Time

Diganth, who is riding high on the success of Pancharangi, is all set to entertain his audience as 'Jolly Boy' in producer K Manju's next film of the same name.

The audio release of the film, which is slated to release in May, was held recently at a City hotel.

‘Jolly Boy’ has Diganth opposite Rekha, of Chitra fame, in the lead, along with veteran actors Devaraj, Sudharani and Tara. Tamil music composer Yuvan Shankar Raja has scored the songs, most of which have been penned by K Kalyan. Diganth shared his experience of working with the team of the film and said he has got a substantial character which conveys a message to the youth.

“In almost all my earlier films, I have played a mature character. For the first time, I have essayed the role of a college-goer in ‘Jolly Boy’. My father used to tell me that film-makers have a huge responsibility towards society and this particular film certainly has a lot to convey to the youth and their parents.

Rekha was already a popular actress when I entered the film industry. It was a lot of fun to work with her. I should also mention Faizal, who too has an important role in the film. Though it was his first movie, he faced the camera like an experienced actor and did a brilliant job,” said Diganth.

Rekha was all praises for her director Sabapathy, who had introduced her in Kollywood with the movie Punnagai Poove. “This film is very special to me, because I am working with Sabapathy after Punnagai Poove. I had a good scope to perform in it and hope it earns me a lot of appreciation,” she said.

Director Sabapathy recollected his association with the City. “I am elated to work for a Kannada film. Though it is my first film here, I don’t feel like an outsider as I share a special bond with this industry.

Like any other film, ‘Jolly Boy’ is a love story but with a difference. It is about how you should not lose yourself in love,” revealed Sabapathy. Director Indrajit Lankesh released the audio CDs in the presence of producer K Manju, lyricist K Kalyan and Shyam Chabria of Anand Audio.
