The Kannada film actor Srimurali became very emotional as he came on the stage on Wednesday evening at the Sangeetha Sanje of Karnataka Film Workers Artists Technicians Federation – the week long celebration of Amrutha Mahotsava.
Remembering his ‘Dodmava’ Dr.Rajakumar with ‘Dodda Aththe’ sitting just before Sri Murali said the Amrutha Mahotsava event without Dr.Rajakumar is not very inspiring for him. I would always call Dr.Rajakumar as ‘Dodmava’ and he is with every Kannadiga. I had the opportunity to ask ‘Dodmava’ his opinion for two of my films. He advised me to see ‘God’ in the eyes of audience. I cannot forget this statement said Srimurali.
Later he sung two songs Baaninda Baa Chandira….and Huttidare Kannada Nadalli Huttabeku….
Music director V.Manohar present at the ‘Sangeetha Sanje’ disclosed that this is ‘Bharjari and Bhavya’ event of cinema workers. Dr.Rajakumar blessing is a special power for Kannadigas said Manohar.
Swastik Shanker once a college lecturer now a villain in Kannada cinema and politician said he had his early days living from the money he earned singing Dr.Rajakumar film songs. He sung the song Yee Sanje Yakagidhe….
The beauty of ‘Sangeetha Sanje’ was Nagaraj Hawaldar singing for 45 minutes the songs picked from Bharatha Rathna Dr.Bhimsen Joshi singings in Kannada. It was a mark of respect to the legend Bhimsen Joshi says Ashok, President of cinema workers federation.
Rangaswamy alias Gangotri Rangaswamy was another attraction at the Sangeetha Sanje at Kanteerava studio. He has sung beautiful songs of Dr.Rajakumar and rendered with lot of care. When he sung the song Nanna Ninna Manavu…..Smt.Parvathamma Rajakumar was present.
