Gagan Chukki gives a message to youth that life is more important than love. The film started rolling at the famous Gaganchukki waterfalls recently. Debutant Govindaraju, who has worked with noted directors Cheran and Bharathi Shanker, is directing the film.
The film tells a triangular love story and Akul, Bhavana Rao and Sanjitha play the lead roles. Akul has so far done only comedy roles and this is his first serious film. His earlier films Banni, Aathmeeya and Paramesha Panwala featured him in comic characters and Akul is keen to prove his mettle in a serious role.
The director says this film has no relation to the Gaganchukki waterfalls except for the name. Gagan is the name of the hero and Chukki is the name of the heroine. The crew shot for five days at the Gaganchukki waterfalls and producer Nitish was very happy after seeing the rushes.
