Director Statement

Stories fascinate me everyday. The very fact that "stories are everywhere & in every little things" excites me and that's what keeps motivating me to write more and more.
What is a movie without story? - it's a body without heart.
Layered storytelling is my favorite thing. I strongly believe that it's high-time Kannada cinema is quickly moving ahead and catching up with some peers.
Cliche'd movie making is a thing. But there are other possibilities too, I am exploring that other side - more no. of layers in a story - more food for thought - more fun. I am also thankful to Veer Santhosh and team of 'Peppermint Pictures' team for producing my latest effort 'Parallel Lines'.
