Seetharama Kalyana has the best cast: Director Harsha 

The team has completed filming the talkie portions and are left with two songs to shoot in Bengaluru

Published: 10th October 2018

Director Harsha has completed shooting the talkie portions of Seetharama Kalyana. The last shot was taken with Bollywood actors Bhagyashree and Sanjay Kapoor, who play pivotal roles in the film. While Seetharama Kalyana is the second Kannada film for Bhagyashree after Ammavara Ganda, this will be Sanjay Kapoor's debut in the industry. The film also features Bollywood and south Indian actors Madhoo and Sarath Kumar as part of its ensemble cast. The director is now left with two songs, which he will shoot in Bengaluru. 

Talking to Cinema Express on how the film has shaped up, Harsha says, "We had the best cast for Seetharama Kalyana. Lead hero Nikhil Kumar, heroine Rachita Ram and all the other artistes have given their best for the film. Each and every person took their character seriously. Artistes who listened to the script got so involved that I didn't find it tedious to explain their respective roles to them."

The director makes a special mention about Nikhil's role in Seetharama Kalayana, saying, "This film will show Nikhil in a different light – not the Jaguar Nikhil. He plays a very mature character in the film," says Harsha, adding, "He will have three characterisations and there are a lot of variations in his performance."

Film will have three songs and no duet number 

Harsha plans to cut down the number of songs in the film, which is touted to be a family and action drama. "Seetharama Kalyana only has three songs that are meant to complement the scenes. I find duet numbers cliched. People are tired of watching the hero and heroine dancing to a dream song in a foreign location. Being a choreographer as well, I feel the trend is changing and I prefer that songs tell a story," says the director, who has also got rid of a special song. "I want to set a trend with songs too, which are a very important element of the film. Pushing a special number into this family drama didn't serve any purpose," he adds.  

The team plans to launch the audio sometime in November, before which the two songs will be completed. With music by Anup Rubens, Seetharama Kalyana has cinematography by J Swamy.
