Cameraman and film producer Anaji Nagaraj who has made two commercial films Shashtri and Snehaanaa Preethinaa is now into making an artistic venture. His film Nandadeepa which is based on a song rendered by Gururaj Hoskote, was his favourite song for many years. And he preferred to chose a young and hard working Shivu Hiremath, who has been struggling, to direct the film.
"Yes, I have made this film with my hard earned money. I was struggling to make both ends meet earlier, but now I lead a comfortable life, thanks to my two productions. I am also a distributor now. But I was always thinking to make a film which gets me a big recognition in the form of awards. But there was no way that I could think of a subject on my own and the Gururaja Hoskote song came to my mind. Why should not I create a story out of this song which is so touching, I thought. That is how Nandadeepa was born. I think the film will bring tears in the eyes of the audience. I am sure the film will touch the hearts of the audience. And I will also realise the dream of winning an award through this film," said Anaji Nagaraj.
Nagaraj said that the film was completed after twenty five days shoot in a village near Hubli. He is planning to release the film with a few prints and has decided to penetrate deeper into B and C centres since he has a good distribution net work of his own. "The film's strength is that it would be able to reach all the sections of the people," said Anaji Nagaraj.
