Why such a romantic scene for ‘Thippaji Circle’. The inmates of affluent personality Davanagere Sahukar especially workers dream of the ‘Boss’ style and grandeur and thus the song of ‘Rathi Manmatha’ comes up.

Anna alias Lucia hailing from Ukrain is the ‘Rathi’ for this song. She is settled down in Mumbai for career progress. Graduated in International Relations, Anna is fond of dancing from young age. It is dancing, dancing and dancing in life she says. Belly dance, western dance, Bollywood dance are her favorites. According to sources she is paid nearly 4 to 5 lakhs as remuneration for this glamorous song.

Ukraine mod girl Anna is traced by choreographer Tribhuvan after going through various photographs. For the Goturi written song Tribhuvan is the choreographer.  

Bharanisri Kasargod has scored music for four songs. This ‘Rathi Manmatha’ song is sung by Hemanth Kumar.

Dr Suresh Sharma preferred to speak less. I have done what is told by director Chikka he says. Choreographer Tribhuvan is a man with lot of patience. He has taken work from me shows his high caliber of patience he pointed.

According to Chikkanna this is the last song shoot for ‘Thippaji Circle’. There is sex related portions for Thippajji. After 50 the character in the film comes for pure love and that is lent by Thippajji he says.

After reading an article in prestigious daily Kannada Prabha director Chikkanna further developed the script and took lot of initiative to make the film that was supported well by producer Siddaram.
