What Upendra has done for the launch of the film ‘A’ – inviting a common audience to clap for his film in the presence of ace director Manirathnam at the Press Club of Bangalore a decade ago– the same has been repeated now for ‘Arbhata’ audio release. The common personality in both the functions was producer Jagannath! Jagannath was one of the producers of ‘A’ while he is executive producer for ‘Arbhata’ – the film starts with the letter ‘A’!
There was ‘Arbhata’ in the arrangements, in the flow of invitees but there was not much of fan fare at the audio release. Lahari Velu urged for the television channels to give royalty for the songs they use frequently was the new thing. Rest was the thanks giving for the media, concern for the losses of Kannada films and hailing the songs. Even music director Rajesh Ramanath took time to appreciate the new singer Santosh.
Actor Roopesh was nervous and he did not say other than the film has come out good. Actress Sonu said this is my ‘Adrushta’! Basavaraju is the producer of ‘Arbhata’ and Vinodkumar is the director of the film.
The Jana Jaathre audio release had Bisibele bath, dry jamoon and kesari bath plus samosa for the invitees!
