The songs of Ganesh's upcoming Kannada movie, "Mungaru Male 2," were released on Friday, Aug. 5. The movie features music composed by Arjun Janya.

The album of "Mungaru Male 2" comprises eight numbers, which have been sung by Armaan Malik, Anuradha Bhat, Shreya Ghoshal, Swaroop Khan, Sonu Nigam, Benny Dayal and Chandan Shetty. The lyrics have been written by Jayanth Kaikini and Gopi Iyengar, among others, including director Shashank himself. 

The upcoming Kannada movie is a sequel to the cult film, "Mungaru Male."
