Actress of 'PUC' Kannada cinema grown up today as post graduate in films Harshika Poonacha appears in a special song of 'Case No.18/9' - the song is so special that it demanded 40 percent budget of the entire talkie portion of the film. It is around Rs.35 lakhs for the song shot in eight background with rain dance very essential for this song.
The special song with foot tapping song is a new opening for Harshika Poonacha career. She looked extremely beautiful in her new outfits for the first time. What is this special song often told in the Kannada cinema industry? It is nothing but a well known heroine appearing as guest in a song - this is not an item song done by the other item dancers says director Mahesh Rao.
The winner of two awards at the national level Tamil film 'Vazhakku Enn 18/9' by Balaji Shakthivelu released in May 2012 is brought in Kannada with minor changes. The backdrop of protagonist is shot in Hotel and one song is added to it. Beach is not found in Bangalore the alternative to it is rain dance that comes in a part of the song says Mahesh Rao. I am not that big enough to change the original script. It is so neat and perfect he says.
Director Mahesh roped in his favorite dance director Dhan Kumar and this is the 25th film of music director Arjun Janya. Praveen Shetty one of the producers stated that the subject itself was compelling to make in Kannada. Another producer pointed the essence of this film is how the love is looked at. The budget has crossed what we have thought he said.
Actor Niranjan has taken tips from a hotel worker Lakshman and cut down 10 kilograms of weight for this film to come close to the original role of Tamil film. The original film was given Rs.10 lakhs for remake rights he says talking to this correspondent. Meanwhile Niranjan of 'Jolly Boys' is in another remake film. It will be hat trick for him. One more with original subject is also on the cards he says. The tussle he had at the time of 'Katari Veera Sura Sundarangi' as for as the subject is concerned is over he explains.
Talented and hard working Sabha Kumar carried the camera on his shoulder for all the portions of the hero of this film.
