Interestingly, the "abduction" took place on the eve of the composer's 37th birthday and the same day also marked the fifth anniversary of his ABBS Studios - a rather momentous day to pull off the act, one would reckon.

How does one avail the services of a music composer like B. Ajaneesh Loknath? There's the lure of working with a big filmmaker, of course, which should do the trick in most cases. Else, there's the power and charm of money to entice the highly sought-after Ajaneesh who has previously delivered soundtracks like Ulidavaru Kandanthe, Kirik Party, and Vikrant Rona. But should you find yourself in dire straits, the only plausible way out is to simply abduct him and hope that, while held at ransom, the Kantara music composer agrees to be a part of your hustle.
Well, it would seem the boys from the Hostel Hudugaru Bekagiddare team have taken extreme ways and by all means, kidnapped Ajaneesh Loknath. This time around, the Hudugaru have identified themselves as a gang of international origin and the recently-released ransom note reveals that Ajaneesh was picked up by the goons from his J.P Nagar (Bengaluru) composing studio on November 19. Interestingly, the abduction took place on the eve of the composer's 37th birthday and the same day also marked the fifth anniversary of his ABBS Studios - a rather momentous day to pull off the act, one would reckon.
The exact reason for the kidnapping isn't known yet but the culprits have promised to release a ransom video on Sunday to put forth their demands. In the past, the team of Hostel Hudugaru Bekagiddare has gone to great lengths to spread the word about the upcoming film and involved several noted celebrities like Puneeth Rajkumar, Kiccha Sudeep, Rakshit Shetty, Rishab Shetty, and Ramya: could this be another attempt to gain more publicity?
As far as B. Ajaneesh Loknath is concerned, the music composer is fresh off the success of the Kantara, Banaras, and Gandhada Gudi. He also has several high-profile projects lined up for release including Santhosh Anandram's Raghavendra Stores, Dhananjaya's Hoysala, and the Srii Murali-starrer Bagheera.
