National award winner Priyadarshan is basking in the glory of his success and his much acclaimed movie Kanchivaram. It has given a new perspective to the filmmaker who has been thus far branded as an out and out commercial director. This Tamil movie with its realistic overtones has given new meanings to the genre of cinema.
The latest buzz is that the filmmaker is planning to make one movie in Malayalam by next year. He revealed this while addressing the media when he came to inaugurate the Akira Kurosawa film festival. ''I am not yet sure of which film I will be doing, but I have made up my mind to do one by 2010. I still have plans to do more realistic movies after 'Kanchivaram". But I have no plans to quit commercial movies for concentrating on this alternate genre of movies.''
If movies are not enough, then the filmmaker is also planning to take part in the IPL auction next year, though his chances of winning oscillate between brightness and bleakness.
