It is to be remembered that KV had been a professional photojournalist before he switched professions to be a film director. And his protagonist in Ko is also armed with a camera. He has also incorporated a scene in Ko, where the leading man"s camera is smashed by a furious gathering, an incident which occurred in the filmmaker"s life, when he was covering a riot in Thirupathur.
Ko has been shot in grim locales in Tanzania, a place which suits the mood of the incidents portrayed in his upcoming action film. In fact, Anand has made it a point to take his music composer Harris Jayaraj to the locations to give him a feel of the place, so that he may be able to score the tracks of Ko keeping the surroundings in mind.
Director-cinematographer KV Anand believes in making films, which are inspired from real life. He stresses on the fact that each and every film that he has made or wants to make should have an element of believability in them and keeping this in mind, he has made his next movie Ko.
