'Darshan Sir was willing to dub for the film'
"I was also told by my producer that even Darshan Sir was willing to dub for the film. He had expressed this to the producer. He wanted to lend support to the film, out of his friendship, he had with Chiranjeevi Sarja," the director is quoted as saying by the daily.

Ram Narayan claims that Chiranjeevi Sarja was keen on dubbing for his character as it had the dialogues in Halegannada (Old Kannada) language and had a couple of lengthy dialogues.

"Dhruva Sarja will give complete justification to his brother's character. We wouldn't have asked for better support," the director adds. The shooting of Raja Marthanda is almost complete except for a duet song.
