LAKSHMANA 50
K
annada film Lakshmana celebrated 50 days of its successful run at the box-office in grand style at a function. H R Ranganath, senior journalist and chief of Public TV and Ravi Hegde, another senior journalist and chief of Udayavani attended the event without sharing the dais. Rebel Star Ambarish was also present as one of the guests.

Politician H M Revanna who has produced the film to make way for his son Anoop’s debut in Lakshmana said he wanted his son to become an engineer but Anoop wanted to be an actor. He said Anoop expressed his desire to join the movies to his mother and so he encouraged Anoop to get trained before making a bow. 

The former minister said he was proud of his son’s achievement as his debut movie had run for 50 days. He said the film is running in Sapna theatre in Bengaluru and 10 other theatres all over the state.

Senior journalist H R Ranganath said Kannada films were competing against one another which was not in the right spirit with the number of releases and fewer number of theatres available. He said Kannada films should compete with other language films and not their own films. He also urged Revanna to produce more films.

Senior journalist Ravi Hegde said Anoop’s debut had been impressive and wished the young actor a long innings in cinema.

KFCC President Sa Ra Govindu said producers should not misguide the media on the quantum of collections. He said producers should stop all gimmicks and come clean on giving correct information.

Ravi Varma, Basha, Thriller Manju, Santosh Pathaje, Sudhindra Hosahalli and Sudheendra Venkatesh were presented with shields on the occasion. Meghana Raj could not make it to the event.

Ambarish said Revanna is like an Apta Mitra to him and Anoop is like his son. He said he had not seen the film but said he had seen songs on television and liked them.

S K Bhagwan, Dr Doddarange Gowda and many other well wishers attended the event. Anoop and director R  Chandru did not speak.

LAKSHMANA TRAILER OUT, HERO ANUP CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY
I
t was a triple celebration for Anup, son of former minister H M Revanna and Vatsala Revanna. Anup celebrated his 22nd birthday and his fans association took birth launched on the same day. The trailer of the film Lakshmana that marks the debut of Anup was also released on the occasion. A huge cut was cut to celebrate Anup’s birthday as well. Lakshmana is being directed by R Chandru who celebrated his birthday on February 7.

R Chandru said a cutout of hero Anup was erected on the day of the muhurta. He said he had vision and foresight that Anup would become an action hero and then a teaser was launched in theatres which became successful. He thanked producer for giving him total freedom to make Lakshmana an action film. Chandru also praised cameraman’s work and said he was tensed whether Anup would live up to everyone’s expectations.

Earlier, producer Vatsala Revanna and mother of Anup said she was doubtful whether her son would act except once when they saw him in school acting. She said her son had surprised everyone and he also looked good on the screen while thanking director Chandru for making it happen.

Former minister Revanna said Anup’s mother has played a major role in the upbringing of their son due to his (Revanna’s) pre-occupation in politics. “I was worried to send Anup to China when he expressed his desire to learn Kung Fu martial arts. But, his mother agreed and sent him for the training. Likewise, Anup is trained in horseriding from the police academy in Mysuru, acting from Tamil Nadu and dance from Hyderabad. He enjoys our full support. The trailer in which he is shown as an action hero has given me immense joy to see,” he said.

Revanna said it is also heartening to note that some producers have already approached to sign Anup for their forthcoming films even before the release of Lakshmana.

Siddesh who is the president of Akhila Karnataka Anup Abhimangala Sangha said he wanted to see Anup grow as an action hero in the industry.

Chandrashekar Bandiyappa who has directed Ane Pataki and the recent hit Rathavara praised Anup after seeing the trailer and added that the young debutant has a good screen presence. He said Anup had been presented well by R Chandru.

Bandiyappa also announced that Chandru had signed him on for Chandru’s third production venture and also his (Bandiyappa’s) third directorial venture which is at the pre-production stage. He said the cast and crew details were also being worked out.

Cinematographer Santosh Rai Pathaje said Lakshmana is his first action film and added that three songs were yet to be shot. He said Anup looked soft but he came alive as an action hero with dedication, discipline and confidence. He said Meghana had performed subtly and has shades of arrogance in her role in the movie.

Meghana Raj said she and her family members saw a spark in Anup when they saw him on television. She said R Chandru invited her to be the heroine of the movie and she accepted the offer because it was a big banner movie and the heroine’s role was meaty enough and it also meant supporting Anup’s spark that her family saw.

Pramila Joshai said she wanted her daughter Meghana to act in Chandru’s film and so was happy when the offer came her way.

Anup said he had been dreaming of becoming an actor since the last 15 years and thanked his parents for helping him and supporting him in realizing the dream. He said he was nervous on the first day but he overcame the fear, he said.

MLA REVANNA LAUNCHES SON’S CAREER AS AN ACTOR
L
egislator H M Revanna’s son Anup also made his debut as an actor with Lakshmana, a film that is being directed by R Chandru. Incidentally, Revanna himself is producing the film to launch his son’s career as an actor.

Revanna said his son expressed his desire to become an actor and thus he thought it was his duty as a parent to fulfil his son’s wish. He said he knew R Chandru well and chose him to direct his son’s first film.

Chandru said Lakshmana in Ramayana had drawn a line that did not allow people to get into the wrong side but in the movie the hero draws a line to achieve something in life. He does not stop until he achieves something. He fights for the family.

Chandru said the film will be shot in Bengaluru and its surroundings. He said the story of the film was ideal to give Anup a mass image.

Anup said he is learning the ropes of acting. He said he went to China to learn Kung Fu martial arts and to Hyderabad to learn dance. Anup said people will love his look that has him with a machete in his hand.

Gnana Murthy is the cameraman. The shoot will begin by the end of the month. The heroine of the movie is yet to be selected.
