Mani Ratnam Bangalore, March 14 (IANS) Actor-singer Shruti Haasan, who sang in Hindi film “Luck”, recently recorded a song for the much-awaited Kannada film “Pruthwi” that stars Puneet Raj Kumar and Parvathi Menon in lead roles.
“Yes, we have recorded a song crooned by Shruti in a Mumbai studio. It is written by K. Kalyan. The lines start with ‘Nenapidu, Nenapidu’,” said the film’s producer Soorappa Babu.

The song was recorded last week under the supervision of composer Manikanth Kadri. The film is directed by Jacob Varghese, who delivered hit film “Savaari” last year. It is being produced by Soorappa Babu and N.S. Raj Kumar. This particular song has already been shot abroad with Puneet and Parvathi.

“We were in talks with Shruti from the past one month and she agreed to sing March 7. She was quite busy working as an actor in a Telugu film and she was also helping her father Kamal in shifting his house from Eldams Road to Sholinganallur. Finally, she was able to allot a convenient date and we recorded the song,” said Soorappa.

He also said Shruti was happy with the lyrics. The audio of the film will be released on March 17 that marks film’s leading star Puneet’s birthday.

Shruti sang her first song when she was just six in her father’s film “Thevar Magan” and also scored music for her dad’s Tamil film “Unnai Pol Oruvanâ”.


Jagapati Babu and I are just good friends: Priyamani

Rubbishing reports that she is dating her “Saadhyam” co-star Jagapati Babu, actress Priyamani says such “rumours” will die their natural death.

“I have acted with Jagapati Babu in my first Telugu film ‘Pellaina Kothalo’, which ran successfully for over 150 days. Then we were paired in ‘Pravarakyudu’, which was also well-received,” Priyamani said.

“I have worked with many heroes in my acting career in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam films. Media has tried to link me with them in the past also, but later all these news items have been rubbished by me,” Priyamani said.

“I think the rumours that link me with Jagapati Babu will die their natural death in a few days. I can only say I enjoy a good friendship with a senior actor like Jagapati Babu, but that should not mean anything more than that,” added the actress whose “Saadhyam” got a lukewarm response at the box office.

Right now Priyamani is looking forward to her bilingual film “Raavan”, which is being made in Hindi and Tamil by director Mani Ratnam.

“I think it will be biggest film in my career. Mani sir has done a fantastic job. I am really thankful to him for placing confidence in me,” she the actress, who is paired with Tamil actor Vikram in the film.
