Though Shivu Jamakhandi is better known as a lyricist and story writer, his intention was to become a film maker when he came to Bangalore about 12 years ago! He wrote songs, stories and even assisted some directors for film making. This weekend (8th July) his debut project as director, Nanna Ninna Prema kathe is releasing all over Karnataka and he is very happy about it.
Talking about the film, ‘It is a simple love story set in south Karnataka, inspired by some real life incidents. I am not making any tall claims about the story being something you may have never heard before, but the difference is in the style of narration. The story required a wholesome actor and for that, Vijay Raghavendra was always our first and only choice. It is a challenging role as he was required to work on getting the right dialect to authenticate the setting of the story. We were also keen on casting a Kannadiga heroine as well, and we waited for Nidhi to complete her commitments before she could join us for the shoot’ said Shivu.
He thanked all the people he worked with and all teachers to make him learn what he is trying to put to work today. MovieMint wishes him all the best for future endeavors and looking forward for Nanna Ninna Prema kathe.
