Sudeep is now busy giving final touches for the post production work of his forthcoming film Just Maath Maathalli which is produced by Shankare Gowda. Ramya is the heroine of this film for which the musical audio album was released recently. The craze for the film has increased eversince the audio has released.
Sudeep says that Just Maath Maathalli is not just a film but his passionate journey towards realizing his big dream. This will be his first directorial venture which is based on an Original story and screen play written by him.
“I work hard for every one of my film whether as an actor or a director. Director’s hat just enhances my responsibility. But this film has been something special to me and I had to take many things in my control as producer Shankar had blindly placed his trust on me’ says Sudeep.
“Raghu Dixit makes all the difference in this film. His song compositions are superb and have lot of freshness in it. Dixit really surprised me with his lyrics. He has been able to introduce many new lyricists for the film. My favorite song in the film Mussanje Manjali which sounds very different from the other songs. It has lot of melody in it’ says Sudeep.
Actor Komal has announced that he is out of director Guruprasad's new film. The film, tentatively titled 'Director's Special,' was announced only last week. Komal had attended the press meet in Hotel Lalit Ashok along with Guruprasad . On Saturday morning he called a private press meet and announced that it was beyond him to shoulder the responsibility of the film.
"The concept and canvas of the film is huge and beyond my capacity. After I heard the story, I realised that I would be unable to do it. So I have decided to come out of the project. I have informed the producer about it," he said. He was asked to speak to the director in the press meet itself. He spoke to Guruprasad on phone and said he was sorry to opt out of the project.
"I am comfortable with humour. But satire is beyond me. I have not told this before but I was offered 'Kallara Sante,' also. But, I did not want to do that political satire," Komal said. Director's Special is about the film industry itself and the satire is on Sandalwood directors. "Being in one family I cannot do satire on family members. Even if it is the director's concept, fingers will be pointed at me. I have full faith in Guruprasad and the loss would be mine and not anyone else," he said.
Komal said there is no pressure on him from anyone to quit the film. "It is my own decision. I was to do two films with Guruprasad. One was a love story and the other the concept of Director's Special. I was under the impression that the love story would be done first. But in the press meet this project was announced. I did not know about the story at that point of time. Later when I realised the enormity of the concept, I am humble coming out of it," he said.
Komal said that he will not be part of the film even if Guru Prasad lowers the bar of expectations as the director is capable of making films even without known artists.
Later speaking to Chitraloka on telephone, Guru Prasad said that he will try to convince Komal, but he may have to go for a new actor if Komal still sticks to his decision.
Karnataka's His Excellency Governor H.R. Bharadwaj held the clap for the muhuratha of Kannada film Mandahasa held at the Hotel Grand Ashok on Thursday, 15th December 2009. Kannada film industry's top film producer Ms. Parvathamma Rajkumar was present as the Chief Guest. Ms. Parvathamma Rajkumar wished the producer and the entire unit of the team of a big success.
Governor urged the film makers to make socially responsible and entertaining films. He remembered his association with many legends of the Indian film industry and called Kannada Movie icon Dr. Raj Kumar as one of the greatest personalities of Karnataka.
The muhurath launch was attended by top personalities of the film industry and people from different walks of life.
Actress Ramya who is now in Chennai working in a Tamil film says that she will be spoken about for her so called negative points for all the twenty four hours by some film personalities.
Ramya says that she was invited to the function by Sudeep and producer Shankar, but she had to explain the circumstances in which she was placed . “Both of them understood the situation and said that they will go ahead with the audio release function. I received a call from Shankar after the function that many had felt my absence and he had explained the reasons for my absence. I am very happy that the audio function went on smoothly’ said Ramya.
There are people who will find Ramya responsible for all the things happening around. They are now telling that I did not attend the audio release function of my film Just Maath Maathnalli just to hurt Sudeep. But the fact is that I was shooting in Chennai on that day where a big set was erected and all the artists were present during the shoot. I was not able to move out of Chennai because the producer would have lost so much of money’ said Ramya.
