Speaking about the song one of the directors, Magesh states, “The song is the intro song for the lead characters Mahat Raghavendra, Yashika Anand, Ma Ka Pa, Sara, and Manobala sir. They are a gang of friends. Usually, when it comes to songs in a pub either it will be a love failure song or an item number. But this song in our flick will be a colorful number in the celebratory tone. The song is sung by actor Simbu and is named as ‘Drunken Monkey Dance.’ We have a signature step in the song choreographed by Hari Kiran master which is definitely going to be popular among the youths in the state at least for some time.” Speaking about the song Mahat Raghavendra stated, “It is a very special song to me as it is sung by my close buddy Simbu. In a way the song describes about who I am in real life.”
The actor also opened up about the flick. Talking about how the project happened, the actor states, “Directors Magesh and Venkatesh approached me to star in the film two years ago. Then I went in to Bigg Boss house. Immediately after I came out of the house they reached out to me again. But this time with a person by name R. V. Bharathan to bankroll our movie. From the beginning the duo was very clear about what they wanted.” Opening up about his role, the actor revealed, “This is a horror thriller flick. My role will be in the dark shades at the beginning but will slowly incline towards a positive one. That is the special about the role.” He also said that he is glad to work with Yashika Anand and that their on screen chemistry is great. We will have to wait to see how the chemistry has worked out between the two in the entertainer as we have already seen their chemistry in the Bigg Boss house.
