Director and Dance choreographer Harsha is so upset with the recent developments involving actor Darshan that the disappointed dance director is believed to have told his friends that he will not take up any assignments for him till he completed the last song shooting of his directorial venture Chingaari. Darshan and new girl Deepkia Thimmaiah will be featured in the main roles of this film directed by Harsha for which Mahadev is the producer.
The last song of Chingaari was to be shot in Sakleshpur from four days starting from last Friday, the day which led to surprising developments including Darshan's arrest and rejection of his bail plea. The whole team of Chigaari was waiting in Sakleshpur for Darshan's arrival to the outdoor spot when the news of Darshan's arrest was flashing in the Televison channles. A shocked Harsha had to return to Bengaluru along with his team on the same day evening.
This development has clearly shocked choreographer and director Harsha who has been in a depressed state of mind, say sources. Harsha should have choreographed the last song of Sudeep and Bhavana starrer Vishnuvardhana which was to have been shot in two sets created in Kanteerava Studios and the Mysore lamps factory from a few days, but now the film's director Dwarakish does not know whether the director will come out of his depression and display his professional conduct in a matured manner. Harsha had earlier choreographed the title song of the film '123 Vishnuvardhana' song a few weeks ago in a special expensive set erected for the song in the Mysore Lamps factory.
It is too well known that it was Sudeep who introduced Harsha as a dance director and later the talented choreographer has now become the most sought out in the Kannada film industry. He may face a real dilemma over the issue of choreographing the last song of the film.
Sources said that Sudeep is also disturbed over the incident as he happens to be a very close buddy of Darshan. Since all communication channels were cut during the romantic song shoot held in Colombo a few days ago, the actor could not have contacted any one here. It has to be seen how Sudeep will now proceed in the matter in the light of the strict vigiliance of VIP movements in Rajiv Gandhi Hospital where Darshan is taking treatment for Jaundice and lever related problems.
