Famous choreographer of Kannada cinema at a very early stage of direction has caught hold of Darshan for 'Chingari' and now century star Shivarajakumar for 'Bhajarangi' that went on the floor on Wednesday morning at Hanuman Temple opposite Yediyur Lake in Bangalore. Karnataka state deputy chief minister and Home Minister R Ashok sound the clap board for the muhurut shot while Smt Geetha Shivarajakumar switched on the camera.
The massive crowd to have a look of Shivarajakumar made the police to go very alert. The media had hectic time in getting inside for the briefing of the film 'Bhajarangi'.
For me it is fourth cinema to direct while it is 105th film for Shivarajakumar. I practiced his style of dancing when I was student watching 'Inspector Vikram'. I also had hairstyle of Shivanna. Today I am directing his film is nothing but a great fortune says Harsha. Harsha directed average flicks like 'Geleya, Birugaali and Chingari' in the past. For this film 'Bhajarangi' he has caught hold of a two shades narration in the first and captivating second half. A youngster goes on finding his history. We have 75 years old backdrop for this film. Obviously 'Bhajarangi' relates to Lord Hanuman. We are even making use of 'Hanuman Chalisa' that has very good vibrations. Shanker Mahadevan is singing this and it is four and half minute's rendition. It is a straight subject for producer Nataraja Gowda director Harsha has prepared. Nanda Shakthi and Damu have worked in the screenplay of the film.
For a question of relevance to 'Bhajarang Dal' director Harsha said they would feel very happy on how we are portraying. There is no scope for any controversy at all he says.
Sitting pretty with good offers, looking extremely fit actress Aindrita Ray is working for the first time as heroine with Shivarajakumar. She was part of an item song in 'Kaddi Pudi' of director Soori with Shivarajakumar and Radhika Pandit in lead. She has worked in the choreography of Harsha for a few Kannada films. This particular role calls for lot of energy to work with energetic star Shivarjakumar. I am myself in the role I am playing in this film is another advantage for me says the pretty Aindrita Ray.
Nataraj Gowda a realtor fan of Shivanna from 'Anand' time is producer. He is supported by his relative Manjunath (producer and distributor). Jack Manjunath precisely is distributor of this film.
Shivaramanna, Bullet Prakash, Sridhar of Sidlingu, MS Umesh are also in the cast of this fantasy subject of Harsha.
Three poster sketches in hand are prepared by Saleem. Jai Anand is also having fulfillment feel because he has grown watching Shivarajakumar films. He is in his 10th film as cameraman. Harsha is shooting in five six schedules.
