Newbie Telugu actress Heena braved scorpion bites filming in the jungles of Telangana for the music video Kala. “There were snakes in the jungle and I was trying to avoid them but was bitten by a scorpion. I was rushed to the hospital and given an antidote and taken back to the shoot. The makers wanted to give me a break, but I preferred to shoot and virtually gave my blood for the video,” chuckles the actress. The only difference on that day was I was bitten by a scorpion, while my favourite actor Salman Khan was bitten by a snake,” he avers.
No wonder the music video has a sting to it. “Life’s journey is all about dreaming and doing something to achieve that dream. The ability to imagine something larger than life forms the essence of living. ‘Kala’ is a musical attempt to depict the dream of many,” says Seshu KMR about his dream music video called Kala in Telugu. Seshu has been working with many filmmakers including his mentor Ram Gopal Varma who launched the music video on his Twitter handle. ‘Kala’ is a musical video song, shot in picturesque locations of Goa and Hyderabad by DOP Bhargav Ravada. Featuring the promising and beautiful actress Heena S, the song is rendered by the well-known singer Neha Karode.
A KMR Corp Presentation and a Playback Entertainment Production, the music video stars Heena S and has lyrics by Kavi Siddhartha with music, concept and direction by Seshu KMR. The editing and Vfx has been done by Surya Reddy SS with Raj Kumar Reddy as the executive producer.
