By now, the news is wide and clear that Rakshit Shetty’s Avane Srimannarayna is going to hit the screens on December 27th, 2019, the last Friday of this decade. So, exactly after a hiatus of 1092 days, we are going to witness the return of Rakshit as a leading man on the big screen. This time though, not only we, the Kannada audience, will savor the ‘Simple Star’ at the theatres, but the entire nation of ours will become proof of his impeccable acting skills and determination. Prepping for a release in five languages simultaneously, the makers of Avane Srimannarayan are leaving no stone unturned to get it to spot on with their product.

The teasers and the posters have already promised us an ‘experience’ at the theatres. To make the output more grand and gargantuan, the makers are investing in the best talent in the industry. Well, if you know about the men who will be working on the music of this movie, you can surely imagine… no, hear the impact that this movie is bound to make at the theatres.

That’s right, Sandalwood’s premier composers, the best in the business right now, B Ajaneesh Lokanath and Charan Raj are working together for the movie Avane Srimannarayana. Before we delve more into the details of this blockbuster combination, let us now look back at the superb work that these two gentlemen have done so far.

B Ajaneesh Lokanath – The ‘Ear Specialist’ that you need


It was in December 2009 that a young music composer named B Ajaneesh Lokanath made his debut with the movie ‘Shishira’. So, Avane Srimannarayana, in essence, will mark Ajaneesh’s tenth year in the industry.
The 10 years in between has only seen the rise and rise of B Ajaneesh Lokanath as a top-notch music director in Sandalwood and beyond. Especially, whenever Ajaneesh worked for a Rakshit Shetty movie, the yield has been phenomenal. Kirik Party and Ulidavaru Kandanthe are considered as one of Ajaneesh’s best works in his career so far. The BGM in Rangitaranga, SHPS Kasargodu and the songs of Bell Bottom are also worth mentioning here. Ajaneesh has even spread his wings across our neighbouring industries with a few impressive albums.

With Ajaneesh working for ASN, we are pretty sure that we will be in for a massive treat at the theatres this December.

‘Charan’a ‘Raj’a – The King of Notes!


Exactly. There is no better way to describe his work than his name. The King of Notes. Charan Raj has been superlative ever since his debut in Sandalwood, eleven years ago.
The first occasion of Charan’s musical brilliance was when his vocals became one of the major reasons for the album ‘Winds of Samsara’ to go all the way to win a Grammy. He followed it up with a fine rendition in the national award-winning movie Harivu.

Next up was his rise to the top-league with Rakshit Shetty’s Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu. Awards galore came his way for his work in this movie. Charan then mesmerized the ‘mass audience’ with the hugely successful album Tagaru. The talented musician has also worked for movies such as Kavaludaari and Jeerimbe in between.

His songs have already provided a distinctive experience to the audience in the past and it can be written down that we can experience something even more fantastic with Avane Srimannarayana.

The Biggest Fusion ever in Sandalwood

Now that you are aware of the kind of ‘big names’ that are at disposal, the makers of Avane Srimannarayana have indeed pulled off a coup by getting these two to onboard for their movie. Considering that both Ajaneesh and Charan enjoy a splendid record with Rakshit Shetty, the output of their work in ASN is bound to get our ‘eardrums’ rolling in the coming weeks. While both the composers have worked for two songs each inside the movie, Ajaneesh Lokanath has also been tasked to indite the BGM. This combo will be a special one for the Sandalwood fans as this kind of a ‘fusion’ is a rarity in the industry. Ajaneesh and Charan boast of different styles of music and it will be interesting to see all of this amalgamate in a single movie.

Since ASN is going pan-India with its release, the makers could not have found a better way to impress the wider market with the audio output composed by these two individuals.

Overall, the makers of Avane Srimannarayana are doing their best to give an unforgettable experience for the viewers. We are sure that there are more goodies in the store, that we are unaware of till now.

In the making for close to 3 years, Avane Srimannarayana is one of the most expected movies in Sandalwood. Directed by Sachin Ravi, Avane Srimannarayana has been bankrolled by Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah and H. K. Prakash Gowda under Pushkar films and Shree Devi Entertainers respectively. The film is slated for release on December 27th, 2019.

For a movie of this magnitude, it is indeed befitting that two of Sandalwood’s prominent musicians have come together to create extravagant music. The credit should go to the director Sachin and the producer Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah for making this happen.
