Straight from the heart

 The guests at the launch.

The who’s who of the Kannada film industry were present at the launch.

Duniya Suri, Puneeth and Raghavendra Rajkumar, Anant Nag, Diganth, Aindrita Ray, Jayant Kaikini and music director Mano Murthy were some of those who attended.

Sonu Nigam has lent his voice to several Kannada film songs but this is perhaps the first time that he has come down for an audio release.

 “I was more than ready to be a part of this function as the team is close to my heart. Whenever I have sung for Mano Murthy and Yogaraj Bhatt, it has done magic. In this particular movie, the music director has experimented with world music and I hope the new style appeals to the people,” he said. Diganth, cheerful as he always is, turned up in a shimmering suit.

“I am bowled over by the lyrics of the song Udisuve Belakina Seereya. Such imagination can come only to someone as reputed as Jayanth. Mano Murthy is the real hero of this film,” he says.

Anant Nag was elated with the role he has been offered to do. “I am lucky to be a part of this project. Yograj creates various roles for me. None of the characters I have done for him thus far have been similar,” he quipped.

Captain of the ship, Yograj didn't have much to say except showering praises on his team. The title song Lifu Istene was well received by the audience. The lead actress Nidhi
Subbaiah didn’t turn up for some reason.

Singer Chetan, Hemanth and rest of cast of Pancharangi were, however, present.
