V Harikrishna turns director with Darshan-starrer Yajamana
Interestingly, Harikrishna’s first film as music director was Jothe Jotheyalli, which was made under Darshan and his brother Dinakar’s banner
Actor Darshan and music director V Harikrishna have associated for 25 films so far. Now, the latter has got an opportunity to wield the megaphone in Yajamana.
Though director Pon Kumar was roped in first, and worked on parts of the film produced by Shylaja Nag and B Suresha, apparently, it was V Harikrishna who has not only scored the film’s music, but has also been involved in the story writing, screenplay, dialogues along with Chethan Kumar, and has even taken up the directorial responsibilities. The film is now in the post-production stage.
Interestingly, Darshan and Harikrishna go back a long way. Harikrishna’s first film as music director was Jothe Jotheyalli, which was made under Darshan and his brother Dinakar’s banner Thoogudeepa Productions. The first film under the audio label D-Beats, owned by Harikrishna and Shylaja Nag, was Bulbul starring Darshan. Now Yajamana brings them together as actor and director.
The film made under Media House Studio features Rashmika Mandanna and Tanya Hope, along with an ensemble cast. Darshan will be in the dubbing studio sometime this week. Meanwhile, the makers have planned to shoot the songs from November 20.
