Previously, T-Series has collaborated with Lahari Music on projects like Kurukshetra, KGF 2, Vikrant Rona, Banaras and also the upcoming Dhruva Sarja starrer Martin
M.G. Srinivas is moving from one strength to another with respect to his most ambitious project to date, Ghost. The film has already made the news for its exciting cast which includes Shiva Rajkumar, who plays the lead, Malayalam veteran actor Jayaram, and Hindi actors Prashanth Narayanan and Anupam Kher.
And to top things off, M.G. Srinivas, or Srini, says that his team is in talks with the very popular Vijay Sethupathi for a key role in the film. A final word is expected to arrive at the earliest.
To make things all the more special, the makers of Ghost have now brought the reputed audio label and film production studio, T-Series, on board. Yes, Srini took to social media very recently to announce that the Bhushan Kumar-led company is all set to make its debut in Kannada Cinema with Ghost and that T-Series has already bought the audio rights of the film.
"Thrilled to announce that @TSeries has bought the audio rights of our Kannada film #GHOST…Honored to be their first individual Kannada investment and we can't wait for you to experience the spine-tingling music," wrote the writer-director in his social media post.
T-Series has predominantly been associated with Hindi cinema but over the years, it has also made small but prominent strides in south India. This wouldn't be the very first foray into Kannada cinema for the record label, considering that it has previously owned the rights to the music of films like Kurukshetra, KGF 2, Vikrant Rona, Banaras and also the upcoming Dhruva Sarja starrer Martin - however, T-Series collaborated with Lahari Music on all these Kannada films.
Ghost, as a result, becomes their maiden 'solo' Kannada investment. The music of the film has been composed by Arjun Janya and fans are excited about the prospects.
As far as Ghost setting new benchmarks are concerned, in a recent exclusive chat with OTTplay, MG Srinivas revealed that Shiva Rajkumar will undergo digital de-ageing for a particular portion of the film. The technology has been previously employed in many high-profile projects like The Irishman, Laal Singh Chaddha, and others.
