who is known for his satirical comedy movies like Mata and
Eddelu Manjunatha, is now putting on his director cap
again for his next movie, which is titled Director
Special. The title is yet to be approved by KFCC. The movie
will hit the floors in January 2010.
Guru Prasad's previous movie Mata had a realistic
theme, whereas Eddelu Manjunath was based on a drunkard
and a lazy brat. Both were message-oriented movies and were satires
on the present society. Navarasa-nayaka Jaggesh had played the lead
role in Mata and Eddelu Manjunatha.
Jaggesh and Guru Prasad, who worked like a inseparable team,
have parted their ways after the movie Eddelu Manjunatha,
which was delayed because of their difference. Now, Jaggy's brother
Komal Kumar will be seen in the lead role in Director's
Special. Jaggesh's loss is Komal's gain.
Guru's upcoming movie Director's Special will be based
on the in and outs of Gandhi Nagar (Sandalwood). In his previous
movies, Gandhi Nagar was just a part of his stories, but now he has
taken it as a lead story. Cast, crew and other details are under
wraps and the movie is yet to be announced officially.
