The Rangi Taranga team, after the grand success, decided to get back together for another film. The same team collaborated for Rajaratha which is due to hit the silver screens on January 25. While plans were to release the romantic comedy in December, it was postponed to January for reasons best known to the filmmakers.
The trailer of Rajaratha was released recently at the Gold Finch Hotel in Bengaluru and it was well attended by several film personalities including the Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar. Incidentally, he had done a voice over for the film and it is a major highlight.
Speaking at the event, the filmâ€™s director thanked Puneeth Rajkumar for being a part of the venture and expressed his desire to direct the star one day in the future. Hero Nirup Bhandari said that he refused to accept several offers that came his way after the Rangi Taranga hit, just to be a part of this team.
One of the producers of the film, Satish Sastry said that Rangi Taranga was one of the biggest hits in the Kannada film industry as it went on to have a 50-day run at the theatres with four shows. He added that this prompted the team of four producers - Ajay Reddy, Vishu Dakappagari, Anju Vallabh and Sathish Sastry â€“ to convert the Jolly Hits Distribution house into Jolly Hits Production house.
Directed by Anup Bhandari, the film stars Nirup Bhandari and Avantika Shetty in the lead roles with P Ravishankar and Arya in pivotal roles. It may be mentioned that Tamil star Arya will be making his debut in Sandalwood with Rajaratha.
Anup Bhandari, the director of the movie doubles up as its music director. He had composed music for the songs while the background score has been done by Ajaneesh Lokesh. William David had wielded the camera for this rom com.
