Interview excerpts

“Many people don’t like my involvement and consider it as an interference in their work! So, I will do what I have been asked to do. I will be a good student from now.”

“Success is taken into consideration and failure is not. I think we have to be more competitive. It is not possible for us to compete with other language films in terms of budget. But we can definitely compete with good subjects.”

“I don’t charge much. I have suggested for a package deal that includes acting, story, screenplay, music, lyrics, editing etc. I have worked on the deadline after my home banners like ‘Shanthi Kranthi’ ten years ago and Aham Premasmi’ very recently was a debacle.”
