Raghu Dixit and Bollywood? No Way!

Raghu Dixit on whether he'll move to Bollywood:
“There are some great music directors in Kannada industry now like Hari Krishna, Mano Murthy etc who are contributing to the industry. The filmmakers are also ready to invest more now; instead of the earlier meager film budgets, producers are willing to invest some millions in the making of the movie.”

Quizzed if he would be joining the Bollywood bandwagon after making his mark in the Kannada industry, Dixit retorts, “I am a Kannadiga and would like to stay in the Kannada industry for the time being. There is a lack of good talent in this industry and new talents are welcome, so I would like to take advantage of this opportunity and compose Kannada songs.

Great decision. We need people to contribute to Kannada industry rather than those who go behind money. My respect to RD has increased!!

Wrong. We need people who contribute to Kannada industry because there's money in it.

Agreed sir but we need people who can understand this!!! RS has taken a great stand I am sure he would rule KFI as music director and there would healthy competetion!!

I agree in his decision.
but our kannada Industry must utilize him in rightway. Either Raghu
or sombody else dont allow our kannada talents to go away from our KANNADA INDSTURY & KANNADA NADU.
GIVE THEM PROPER OPPERTUNITY
TO SHOW THEIR TALENT & MAKE THEM TO REACH THEIR DREAMS.

hindi and punjabi music industry is strong, so his name might go unnoticed there. In kannada industry, there is lots of opportunity for talents. but still it depends on the opportunities he gets. for example, music director Arjun has given great music throughout his career but all his films so far have flopped at the box office, hence his music is not noticed by many. giving music for film industry is a tricky business. hope Raghu Dixit understands this and should not regret his decision later.

Am a Mysuriga,, and I know how Raghu has struggled to reach where he is right now. He is a very down to earth, simple Kannadiga. His immense talent was recognized by Bollywood stars but Kannada media or industry didn't give a damn to him until Psycho happened. Now, all these talented Kannadigas should go ahead and create a rage among Kannada youth about Kannada music, Kannada movies and help create more market for Kannada.

Such Kannadigas who boast about their root of being a Kannadiga should be felicitated. All such kannadigas who influence the youth of this state should work together if we want to see Unity among kannada breathen.

What Rehman is for Tamil Raghu Dixit is for Kannada. Kannada Film Industry is waiting for Raghu's contribution & people are badly in need of another Shankar Nag and RD has all the talent in the world to Rock the music industry.

If RD can set a platform for Rock songs in Kannada..the coming generations can take over from there..& our Inudustry can grow as big as Bollywood. I wish Raghu Dixit grow in stature day by day and become famous in the whole world.

Have a good luck Raghu, Sure you will be the heart throbe for the young and old generations of Kannada, Up lift the name of Karnataka nation wide and world wide, thare are lot of hopes from you.

I have heard Santha Shishunal Sharif songs in your compose, brilliant, you can take all good scipts from kannada and compose music to reach those great words to yound generation.

Before C. Asswath did this job excellently he was also a great musician but his way is melody and folk. New generation is not behinc those tracks.

Please take over the young generation with your music and lirics from great poets of Kannada

Good decision by Raghu... all the best for that..folk compositions are good...should try writing originals in kannada as well than just the so called official language hindi..

Yene HeLi Raghu Dixit gu salpa hindi vyamoha jaasthi..
