Recollecting the song Hosa Gana Bajana which was shot in Bangkok, Priyamani says that the loud costumes in the song were chosen on purpose. “It’s a futuristic song. But we had not planned to shoot it there and when our director suddenly decided to shoot this song, we went shopping frantically and picked up whatever we got, but ultimately we had a blast shooting for the song,” she says.

Trying out new costumes is nothing new for namma Power Star, who has recently done a Jack Sparrow act in the movie Raaj, The Showman. For Raam, Puneeth has donned the costume Hrithik Roshan had worn in Krrish and Spiderman’s costume for one of the tracks. Since the original had this particular track, director K Madesh decided to retain the same in the Kannada version as well. It is said that Madesh brought in a professional designer from Mumbai to work on superhero get-up. Puneeth says that he had a lot of fun shooting for the song, “I wear these costumes in a small comical part. I enjoyed doing it and hope the kids like it,” he says.

Produced by Aditya Babu, Raam, will be the second film releasing under his home production ‘Aditya Arts’,  the first being Anthu Inthu Preethi Banthu, where he starred opposite Ramya. One can only wait and see what Raam has in store for us.
