Director KM Chaithanya, who was disappearing from the limelight after the release of the movie Suryakaanti, is now back in the news. The upcoming Kannada director has been shooting for the documentary on noted writer Girish Karnad for the past one year and he is doing last day filming for it today.
KM Chaithanya exclusively spoke to oneindia about the shooting of the documentary. He says, "I've been shooting for the documentary on Girish Karnad. Today is the last of the shooting and Today, we shot the walking scene of Karnad sir at JP Nagar Mini forest in Bangalore. I will start editing work soon."
He adds, "Girish Karnad is a great contemporary writer, playwright, actor and film director in Kannada. He is one of the seven recipients of Jnanpith Award. The documentary on him covers his life, work and way of life. It is a 22-minutes documentary and is being produced by Karnataka Information department."
However, KM Chaithanya honestly admits the failure of the movie Suryakaanti and he does not regret it. He says, "Suryakaanti got average response from the audience. I don't mind it because the audience will watch a movie if it is really good." Talking about his next movie, he says, "I'm planning to start my next flick from January."
