When two talented actors of the calibre of Sudeep and Nithya Menen come together, their pairing not only creates a sensation, but also gives a new dimension to the beauty of the film. Teaming up for the first time in the bilingual film, Kotigobba 2 in Kannada and Mudinja Ivana Pudi in Tamil, the actors have now intensified the buzz by lending their voice for a romantic duet in the film.
Confirming the news, Surappa Babu, the producer of the film said, “Sudeep and Nithya completed recording for the song. The lyrics have been written by Dr Nagendra Prasad and they have sung only for the Kannada version.
The song sequence was shot recently at Innovative Film City, choreographed by A Harsha.”
