With the year coming to a close, Sandalwood is getting ready for a final massive flourish, courtesy the release of the much-awaited movie Avane Srimannarayana. The makers have confirmed that the flick will hit the theatres this year and finally, the hard work of Rakshit Shetty and team for 3 long years will come up before the audience in a few more days.

As part of the promotions, Rakshit was recently involved in an interview in which he revealed a very interesting detail about Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar’s role behind the spark of the idea which led to the birth of Avane Srimannarayana’s story.

In one of the music settings with Ajaneesh Lokanath, Rakshit came across a composition of Ajaneesh which had a few notes from the legendary movie ‘Bhakta Prahalada’. It was during this sequence when Rakshit Shetty paid close attention to Puneeth’s reply of ‘Avane Srimannarayana’ to Dr. Rajkumar’s question of ‘Yaarivanu?’.

An idea was born in Rakshit’s mind, who soon imagined the hero’s introduction scene of this movie immediately. From then on, there was no stopping as the story was developed in full throttle and it has now come to become one of the most expected movies in Sandalwood.
