Raghanna had clearly said to treat the film as any other film and not a special film as it marks the debut of Vinay Rajkumar. So, we were very relaxed and the shooting went off very smoothly. Now that the film is nearing release and the expectations are high about the film, now I am feeling tensed' says Prakash Jayaram.

    Vinay Rajkumar plays a rock star in this film and Apoorva Arora plays heroine to Vinay Rajkumar.
