Remya Nambeesan, who recently made her entry into Kannada in P C Shekar’s Style King, has now been introduced as a singer in Rudratandava directed by Guru Deshpande.
The director who picked her up for a couple of reasons says that it was an advantage of having an actress who is also a good singer.
Rudratandava is a remake of a Tamil film Pandiya Naadu that saw Vishal in the lead role and Remya had sung the same song in the original, and it was a hit. So we opted for her voice for the remake version too.” The lyrics for the song written by K Kalyan go with the same tunes as the Tamil version, with little changes made to match it to the local nativity. The song in Kannada is Try try try... training koditini once more try.
“The song was sung 15 days ago in Chennai. Remya, who is starring in Style King, will also be singing a couple of songs. Remya, who is an established actor in Tamil and Malayalam film industries, is popular as a singer as well. She turns singer for a Kannada film with Rudratandava,” the director says.
The actor who forayed into films with Sayahnam, a Malayalam film, has worked in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films over the last decade and more. Winning critical acclaim for many of her performance, she made a mark as a mature performer in the Malayalam films Traffic and Chaappa Kurish. After her debut in Kannada, the actor is expected to assert her pan-South presence.
