Arjun Janya has been successful in spotting the right talent among locals as well as those from Mumbai. The music director, who takes credit for having given opportunities to singers such as Sanchit Hegde, Mehboob and Arman Malik, has now roped in yet another famous playback singer from Bollywood, Divya Kumar for the sequel of Victory.
The singer who has been part of films like Kai Po Che, Bhaag Milka Bhaag, and Finding Fanny, to name a few, will now be lending his voice to a Kannada song for the first time. Divya Kumar was in Bengaluru to record a song for the Hari Santhosh-directorial, with lyrics written by Dr Nagendra Prasad. "It's a humourous duet that features Sharan and Asmita Sood," says the filmmaker, adding, "As a director, I think that Divya's voice matches the local setting of the film."
The lyrical video of Please trustu... will be unveiled on September 3. Victory 2 that uses the victory sign in its posters, also features Apoorva in the female lead along with Asmita Sood. The film is produced by Tarun Shivappa and Tharun Sudhir, while the creative head is Ravi Shankar. With cinematography by Guru Prashanth Rai, the sequel is touted to be a romantic comedy.
