Music director V Harikrishna and his eight-member band will keep holidaymakers entertained as they are all set to perform at  Lalbagh on Republic Day. This live performance will have them performing songs from the upcoming film Raate directed by AP Arjun. Incidentally Raate is made by the music director’s production house, Harmonium Reeds.

“Since people come in large numbers for the Lalbagh flower show, we thought that this would be a good opportunity for us to take our songs to the public and let them hear the music from our film. The entire team of Raate including lead actor Dhananjay, director Arjun, Shruthi Hariharan, Bullet Prakash as well as a few others will be attending the event,” says Harikrishna.

As far as the release of this romantic family entertainer is concerned, the dates have been finalised and Harikrishna now plans to release his film around the time of Ugadi. He believes that this is the perfect time to launch a film. “Ugadi is celebrated as the New Year so it is auspicious. Second, there a lot of films lined up for release now and there is the Cricket World Cup around this time as well as exam season. Thus an Ugadi release will be the best,” he says.

The film will be distributed by Toogudeepa Productions with well-known cinematographer Sathya Hegde framing the shots. The film has been shot in the lush Dandeli forests as well as Bengaluru.
