In a recent interview to Oneindia.in, the director said that he would like to make creative movies with small budget. He criticised the producers, who are spoiling the quality of the Kannada films for money. He warned such produces, "if they would not correct themselves soon, Kannada film industry would sure to land at trouble."
Guruprasad denied the reports of the clash between him and Jaggesh. He said, "I don't have any clash with Jaggesh. Of course, I and producer Sanathkumar had some idealogical clashes, which have been solved now. In fact, the chemistry between me and Jaggesh works out very well. That's why both the movies Mata and Eddelu Manjunatha are successful at the Box Office."
However, director Guruprasad has got offers from 14 producers after the success of the movie Eddelu Manjunatha. "I will accept the offer of the producers those love creative movies and pay me higher amount of money," Guruprasad said.
