What a great coincidence! The song O Thaayi Thaayi Janmava Koduvalu Thaayi….Bhoomi Thaayi….sung by Dr.Rajkumar for one and the only film hero Ajay Gundu Rao son of former chief minister R.Gundu Rao in ‘Hoovu Hannu’ (based on Triveni novel made in the year 1993 by Vaibhavalakshmi Productions starring Lakshmi, Ajay Gundu Rao, Vyjayanthi, Baby Shyamili directed by S.V.Rajendra Singh Babu) at a situation where he does not have father is now used with a minor changes in the BGM. This is also a tribute for national acclaimed music director Hamsalekha by ‘Vamshi’ music director R.P.Patnayak.
For the father less-hero that song in ‘Hoovu Hannu’ was used on actress Lakshmi and Ajay Gundu Rao. Now in ‘Vamshi’ Lakshmi is the common factor and the touching song has become very emotional for Puneeth Rajakumar because in the real life his icon father Dr.Rajkumar is no more and moreover it is sung by Dr.Rajakumar.
Puneeth Rajakumar latest flick ‘Vamshi’ a home banner slated for release in the first week of October 2008 has used a song sung by Dr.Rajakumar for ‘Hoovu Hannu’ seeking permission from director S.V.Rajendra Singh Babu according to the highly placed sources. This particular song is kept in as a tight secret and not mentioned in the audio cassettes and CD’s.
The idea of using the song of Dr.Rajakumar in ‘Hoovu Hannu’ was suggested by director Prakash and producer of ‘Vamshi’ Raghavendra Rajakumar liked the idea so that the icon father memory is in tact in the film.
We also have the news that Upendra has done the voice over for the film ‘Vamshi’ for a particular portion.
