Raghu Dixit's 25-year-old tune finds a place in Krishna’s Love Mocktail
The film is jointly produced by director Krishna and Milana Nagaraj, who also play the lead roles
Raghu Dixit has hit the right notes for Krishna’s directorial debut, Love Mocktail. The musician and singer has composed five songs and one promotional number for the album. However, the soulful number, Kanna Haniyondu Kannalle thoogi, yeke Heegondu baara edheyolage, is special. The tune used for this song was composed 25 years ago. It has now finally found a place in Love Mocktail.
“This was one of the first tunes I composed when I started my musical journey,” says Raghu Dixit. “I never had the opportunity to use this tune. In fact, I had proposed the composition to a couple of filmmakers, but we could not blend it with the album. They say everything has a time, and this is one example. The situation and this particular song in Love Mocktail go extremely well, so much so that the track will ring in people’s minds even after they exit the theatre,” he adds.
Raghu’s music has many admirers, and he is looking forward to having a sensational hit. He has seven films in his kitty, which he says will be out this year. “I start with Love Mocktail, followed with Ninna Sanihake and Orchestra, for which I am a part producer, and then Garuda, among other films. People will get to hear my music for the next seven months,” says Raghu.
Love Mocktail is jointly produced by director Krishna and Milana Nagaraj, who also play the lead roles. It is set to hit theatres on January 31. The cast also includes Amrutha Iyengar, Rachana Inder, and Abhilash.
