Vijay, Rachita Ram turn up the style in Hosa Padmavati

Bangalore Times has accessed this exclusive still from the making of the song, Hosa Padmavati, from Duniya Vijay and Rachita Ram's next, Johnny Johnny Yes Papa. The song Padmavati, from Johnny Mera Naam that was picturized on Ramya, was a popular number. So, did director Preetham Gubbi feel like he had his task cut out for him with the new number? "Apart from the word Padmavati, the song is completely different. It is a duet, with music by B Ajaneesh Loknath and Vijay Prakash doing the male vocals. This song will be more stylish and is being shot on huge sets," says Preetham. Ask Rachita if she feels the pressure of stepping into Ramya's shoes, and she says, "Not at all. The entire song is very different, from the look, to the costume and the style of dance. I'm in love with the entire ambience." For the four sets, Vijay will be seen in four different looks — complete with four different hairstyles and hair colours. All this was done over three months, during which Vijay simultaneously worked on his body. "International body builder Manju has trained me and my hairstyles are the work of a stylist from Mumbai. Preethu (Preetham) has changed me completely. I like experimenting with my looks and I am happy to have a director who has a classy taste," says Vijay, who is confident that this dance number, choreographed by Murali, will be more popular than the original.
