Gagana (Kannada: ಗಗನ, meaning Sky) is a 1989 Kannada movie starring Anant Nag and Kushboo, produced by Ravikiran Combines.


This is the love story of a textiles manufacturer owner, Raju(Anant Nag), and his secretary, Asha/Gagana(Kushboo Sundar).
Asha, a chatterbox joins as secretary to Raju, a widower. With her dedication, she wins over the disciplined Raju. When Asha's mother reveals to her that she was married in her childhood, Asha is heart-broken. Raju's mother visits Asha's house to comfort her, only to find Asha is Gagana, the kid, who was married in her childhood to Raju. She brings Gagana to her house, but Raju who doesn't remember the child-marriage and is leading a widower's life after death of his wife Mahalakshmi does not accept Gagana into his life.

  • Quite Unusual for Ananth Nag movies, a steamy song was shot. Khushboo had joked Ananth Nag was probably the only hero, uncomfortable to shake leg with a heroine drenched in rain.
  • This movie was shot when Ananth Nag, was dejected after a part-time stint with undivided Janatha Party (1983-88) and decided to do movies full-time.
