PC Shekar, best known for films like Romeo, Style King, Raaga and The Terrorist, among others, is gearing up to bring his next. Called Love Birds, the film has been produced by actor Kaddipuddi Chandru and pairs real-life couple Darling Krishna and Milana Nagaraj in the lead. Shekar had recently released the first look teaser of the film, which received harsh criticism, over the pairing, and the fact that leading man Krishna seems to have a rom-com in theatres every month or so, each of which look and feel similar.
Shortly on the heels of the teaser launch, Shekar has now presented the first song from the film. Speaking at the song launch, he said, “There is a dearth of family entertainers, which is why I set out to make Love Birds. In human life, marriage is a transition phase for a man and woman, and, if one or both parties are also setting up a separate family unit, that can be a situation with a lot of emotional happiness. It has been a long-standing desire to convert this happiness into a song – a marriage song to be precise. I got that opportunity with this film. The song, Neene Dhoretha Mele, was necessary in the film. Darling Krishna and Milana Nagaraj are paired in my film and having them together was interesting because when I’d present any situation/scene, they would figure out a plan on how best to execute it. The reason the song Neene Dhoretha Mele has turned out so well is the two of them.”
As for the music, Shekar says that he had asked composer Arjun Janya to come up with a fusion element. “Love Birds is my ninth collaboration with Arjun sir. Kaviraj, who has written this song, has also worked on most of my films. This is a song that will remind people of something related to their marriages,” he added.
The buzz in industry circles is that Shekar is looking at giving the film a Valentine's Day release, given that Krishna and Milana have had a good track record with that date, with Love Mocktail and Love Mocktail 2. Love Birds, we hear, will probably be in theatres on February 17.
