Film: Janoo     Actor: Yesh        Actress: Deepa sannidhi

The month long schedule of Jayanna’s film Janoo directed by Preetham Gubbi and featuring Yash and Deepa Sannidhi in main roles has been completed in Bidar and Sakleshpur. The major portions of the shoot have been completed now. S.Krishna is the cameraman while Hari Krishna is the music director.

Talking to Chitraloka Mega Portal, a happier Yash described Preetham Gubbi as a super cool director. “We had a blast of shooting in Bidar and Sakleshpur schedules. We have to complete the song shooting of the film. This year has been good to me. I had a hit in Kiraathaka and my film Rajadhaani was well appreciated. I have finished the film Lucky in which I am paired with Ramya. The film has shaped up very well. Debutant director Suri has done a good job. Even the songs of the film are well shot’ said Yash.

Yash also said that he has not heard the story of Nagashekhar’s new film “Mynaa’ and talks are going on about the project. “Now that I have come back to Bengaluru after a big schedule of Janoo, I hope to hear the same. Everything has to be finalised about this film. My decision is to take one project at a time and I am hoping to complete the song shooting of Janoo shortly to take up my next project’ said Yash.

‘Incredible India’ has Bidar glance.

‘Incredible India’ at IFFI 

India is a country with diverse cultures and regions. ‘Incredible India’ has been the tag line to promote tourism all across the country highlighting its serenity, ecstasy and beauty. International Film Festival of India in its 42nd edition included films that depict the beauty of India through its three films in the section “Incredible India”.

The first film ‘Chadar’ directed by Prashant Sareen beautifully portrays Ladakh and its environs. Tucked away in the Zanskar valley of Ladakh lies the most spectacular trade routes that connect the villages to the capital Leh. Though it is not so well known as most of the larger trade routes, but it is a compelling and exciting journey.

The next film ‘Karnataka Tourism’ directed by Kiran Carriappa taces the journey of a young traveller through Karnataka in South India. Starting with cosmopolitan Bangalore, the film travels to Bidar and Gulbarga. The adventure sports of Dandeli, the dense forests with glimpses of wildlife in the area complete the experience. The film was adjudged as the best tourism film at the National Tourism Awards.

The film, ‘A World of Beauty and Grace’ directed by Benoy K Behl traces the architecture of Islamic mosques and tombs. The confluence of local talent with inspirations from Iran, Arabia and Central Asia has also been highlighted in this film.
