Dayaal Padmanabhan has just finished the entire shooting portions of his forthcoming film Sri Harikathe and is busy doing he post production work of the film. The film is slated for release on January 1 and Dayaal has already done a promotional music video for the film.
Dayaal has followed the new trend now being practiced in Bollywood. Most of the films starring Akshay Kumar have their separate one or two minute promotional videos for which even separate shooting has already been done. . However Dayaal is little surprised that the last song he had shot for the film in Forum and other places has been termed as an item song in the film.
Pooja Gandhi was featured in the song along with many other dancers which has been choreographed by Murali. “I was surprised to read in some news items that the particular song was an item number. It is not an item number. Pooja is playing the role of a model in the film and I needed a song for her character’s introduction in the film. And I had already decided to have a wonderful song for this introduction. It is certainly not an item number, but part of the story of the film. I don’t think I have included any sequence or song in this film just for commercial considerations. As for as I am concerned the film has a sure fire commercial story which will appeal to the young audience. to Even Pooja Gandhi feels that the solo song number is not an item number. “I have done many solo song numbers in films, but this one is certainly unique. The song was shot with lot of style and variety. I had some great costumes to wear for this song’ says Pooja.
