Telugu director Indraganti Mohan Krishna is now awaiting for the release of his upcoming film Anthaku Mundhu Aa Tharuvatha starring Sumanth Aswin and Isha in the leads. The National award-winning director is keen to adapt Chivaraku Migiledi by Butchi Babu on the big screen.
Talking to IANS, Indraganti Mohan Krishna confirmed the news about adapting Chivaraku Migiledi to big screen. The director said, "I have been trying to write a screenplay based on the novel. I'm very much interested to start working on it soon."
Chivaraku Migiledi, originally written in 1946 by Butchi Babu, is the story about a man's conflict with the society and his realisation of peace and self-knowledge in the process. "It has a very strong message that I think will be very relevant for today's generation. As soon as 'Anthaku Mundhu Aa Tharuvatha' is out, I will start working it," said Mohan Krishna.
While Indraganti's national-award winning Telugu drama Grahanam was based on the work of writer Chalam, his other successful film Golconda High School was based on an eponymous novel by Hari Mohan.
