Vishnuvardhan's performance in 'Simhadriya Simha' has inspired the script of 'Rajasimha', releasing across the city today. Director Ravi Ram watched all of Vishnuvardhan's films and was impressed the most by the character of Narasimhe Gowda in 'Simhadriya Simha' (2002). In 'Rajasimha', Vishnuvardhan's son-in-law Anirudh plays the son of Narasimhe Gowda. Bharathi Vishnuvardhan plays Anirudh's mother. Ambareesh makes a guest appearance.

One of the highlights of the promotions is an 11-foot statue of Narasimhe Gowda. It will be taken out in a procession from Anand Rao Circle to Anupama theatre in Gandhinagar on Friday morning. "Made with fibreglass, it will eventually be placed at a Vishnuvardhan memorial coming up in Mysuru," Anirudh told 'Metrolife'.

Stepping into the shoes of Vishnuvardhan hasn't been easy for Anirudh. "In the film, I carry forward Narasimhe Gowda's legacy of helping the poor and empowering women. This is what Vishnuvardhan did in real life," says Anirudh. The audience will see many similarities between Vishnuvardhan's reel image and real life, he explains.
