Singha is very much a Kannada word: Uday K Mehta
The film, which is in the post-production stage, is directed by Vijan Kiran and stars Aditi Prabhudeva as the female lead
The recently-released teaser of Chiranjeevi Sarja's Singha, despite satisfying a majority of the audience, rubbed some people the wrong way. The title of the film hasn't gone well with certain fans who feel the word is alien to Kannada.
Producer Uday K Mehta has denied this saying, "Singha is very much a Kannada word, and it was considered after much thought and research. I wanted a title which symbolically represents a lion. Since the titles, Simha and Kesari, were booked already, we started searching for alternatives and finally found that Singha was a synonym to Simha and is an old Kannada word."
The film, which is in the post-production stage, is directed by Vijan Kiran and stars Aditi Prabhudeva as the female lead. The first song of the film, Shaane Top Agavle, composed by Dharma Vish will be released by Dhruva Sarja on March 21.
