Payana marks the debut of small screen actor Ravi Shankar as a hero. Ravi Shankar, who is famous as Dr Vittala Rao in the mega serial 'Silly Lalli', had earlier acted in a couple of films, but in small roles. This is not only the debut of the hero but also director Kiran Govi and producer Venkatesh Dodmane. 'Payana' which has been in the making for more than a year, tells the story of a poor taxi driver who falls in love with an NRI girl in a journey. You may of course be reminded of 'Raja Hindustani' on hearing the story-line, but the director promises that the film is not at all a remake the Amir Khan- Karishma Kapoor starrer, but a straight subject that he has written a couple of years back. The film has been shot in some excellent locales of Bangalore, Mysore, Chickamagalur and Madikeri. Songs by V.Harikrishna is already a hit with the audience, particularly 'Modada Olage' and 'Manasa Gange', sung by Sonu Nigam, which have turned much popular with cine-goers.
