The film, which is scheduled for release on March 14, is already in demand thanks to its spectacular tunes. His songs Kaddu Kaddu and Deelige Deelu have been topping music charts for the past four weeks already. Gooli stars Sudeep and has been produced by Ramu.
From law to music
Anoop Seelin is a perfect case of a youngster who studied to be something but landed up following his dreams.
Son to former justice K Channabasappa, Anoop too is trained to be a lawyer and was recently awarded a doctorate from the Mysore University. But, it was his passion for music that made him join Hamsalekha.
Anoop joined the musician’s troop as a chorus singer. “I worked for Hamsalekha for five years and in the process, I have learnt a lot from him. Like him, I believe in composing good tunes without falling prey to copying them. Though, now I have stepped away from under his fold in order to showcase my capabilities. Of course, I would not have been able to do so without the help of P Satya who gave me the opportunity to make my debut with Gooli,” says Anoop.
According to Anoop, there are a lot of great tunes being churned out in the film industry. But when it comes to setting a trend, there are just a handful that have managed to do so.
“One could easily identify three big trendsetters here. The first one was Hamsalekha with his magical tunes in Yuddhakanda, Ranadheera and Premaloka. The second trend was set by the Upendra-Gurukiran combination. They did some great work with their films A and Upendra. Music director Mano Murthy set the third recently, with his work for Mungaru Male. I hope I will be able to bring in a new trend someday too,” he says with a smile.
The new music director already has two other projects lined up — Eddelu Manjunatha and Janma.
