Senior director Aditya Chikkanna along with hero Vijay Raghavendra is in Shimsha today to kickstart the shooting of Vamshodaraka. The director plans to start with a song sequence that celebrates the natural beauty of Karnataka.

"It is rare to hear or see a song which is about nature. This particular song will be set against the picturesque green and hilly backdrop of our state and will feature Vijay Raghavendra," says Aditya.

While commercial entertainment has become the chief preocupation among today's filmmakers, Chikkanna has chosen a rural subject and returns to the lives of farmers. Meghana Raj has been roped in to play the lead heroine and senior actors Lakshmi and Srinivas Murthy also play important roles in the film. "There are a few youngsters today who go out and excel in their studies, however, after their education, they still prefer to come back to the village and become agriculturists. My film will throw light upon the importance of having agricultural land and the lives of farmers, who form the backbone of our country. 65 per cent of the shoot will take place in beautiful locations in and around Mysore. Lakshmi will join the sets from November 10 along with rest of the cast.

Meanwhile, Chikkanna is ready with his other big film Thippaji Circle.

The director hopes to release the film sometime in the month of November.
