'Prema Baraha is a classic and my favourite song as well'
...says Aishwarya Arjun, whose father and film's director, Arjun Sarja, picked his film's title from this classic song which he has recreated it in his upcoming directorial
Arjun Sarja, whose directorial Prema Baraha took its title from the classic song Prema Baraha Koti Taraha, has recreated the track in his film starring his daughter Aishwarya Arjun and Chandan. The Tamil version of this bilingual film, titled Solli Vidava, too has a similar track.
Interestingly, this has been Arjun Sarja’s caller tune for the past six years, says his daughter, who is happy to be part of this evergreen song. “It is one of my favourite songs as well. It reminds me of my childhood since I grew up listening to it. My father’s friends all over the world instantly connected with this song and loved its tune. The song has become a hit on YouTube too, with over a million viewers,” says Aishwarya.
On being part of its newer version, she says, “Everything fell in place for our film. Since it is a love story, this was the perfect title. When we were thinking of the songs, he thought it is best to retain the track as well. Of course, a bit of an oomph was added to it with different orchestration in the new version.” Armaan Malik and Palak Mucchal became the new voices for this classic song. The video was shot in Switzerland.
With Prema Baraha ready and waiting for certification from the Censor Board, the filmmakers are looking for a January 2018 release.
The music has been scored by Jessie Gift for the Kannada and Tamil versions, and cinematography is by HC Venugopal.
