One of the busiest music director of Kannada cinema Arjun Janya who scores the tunes on his huge table at his studio that has a huge portrait of AR Rehman world famous Indian film music composer feels the tunes he prepares after hearing the subject and situation in just two to three hours is nothing but the 'God's Gift' to him.
25film releases in five years and 21 Kannada films yet to release Arjun Janya has the crop like AR Rehman. He is fond of the ace composer of this nation so much.

The films lined up for Arjun Janya are Dove, Dilwala, Bhajarangi, Bahaddur, Chaddi Dosth, Victory, Paru Wife of Devadas, Jayammana Maga, Sweety and others.
