Ajaneesh Loknath to compose music for Sudeep’s Phantom
The music composer, who has been working with director Anup Bhandari since his debut Rangitaranga, will be working on a Kichcha-starrer for the first time
Director Anup Bhandari’s next, the Sudeep-starrer Phantom, will feature music by B Ajaneesh Loknath. While the director and music composer have already worked together in films like Rangitaranga and Rajaratha, this will be the first time Ajaneesh Loknath will be a part of a film starring Sudeep.
The director, who is also a singer, has previously collaborated with many popular music directors of the Kannada film industry, including Hamsalekha, Gurukiran, V Harikrishna and Arjun Janya.
Ajaneesh made his debut with Shishira. He is known for his compositions in films like Ulidavaru Kandate, Rangitaranga, Kirik Party, Sarkar Hi Pra Shale, Bell Bottom and Avane Srimannarayana, to name a few. His latest work was for KS Ashoka’s Dia.
Sudeep’s adventure drama Phantom, made under the banner of Shalini Arts and produced by Manjunath Gowda, is bringing the actor-producer and the director together for the first time.
The team has completed one schedule and is working towards resuming the next schedule in the first week of July at Annapurna Studios, Telangana, where huge sets are being constructed. Meanwhile, the makers are finalising the lead heroine, along with the rest of the cast and crew.
