For the parallel role of protagonist Auto Ramanna there is Mahendra Munoth (look at one of his stunts – he raises his leg to the shoulder of a villain – normally seen in Sahasa Simha Dr Vishnuvardhana films).
As the first stage of publicity, a few songs were shown while a traditional CD was released at Sri Renukamba Digital studio.
Prof Doddarange Gowda, Padmasri award winning personality penned six songs for this film. Auto Ramanna is `Sakalakalavallabha`. He is multi talented and displayed his strength in all departments. Without using pen and paper, he was deciding on dialogues and shots. He is ‘Ashu’ dialogue writer. There are five and lakh auto drivers and they watch the film once the investment is back. Prof Doddarange Gowda preferred to call singer Ajay Warier as junior Jesudas. All good talents should get encouragement, felt Prof Gowda.
Auto Ramanna speaking on this occasion said he thought of two songs for Mahendra Munoth another social service minded personality, actor, cow protector and Maruthi Medicals proprietor. Knowing the dedication of him, the songs increased to six. The Cow song, very favourite of all has good meaning. A series of eight female artists left in the middle finally it is Yogashri who adjusted and acted well.
