BANGALORE: Director Nanda Kishore has finally got an opportunity to direct Sudeep, whom he considers as his guru. “Every young director has the dream of working with stars like Sudeep, Puneeth Rajkumar, and Darshan. I am just three films old and I am getting to work with my guru,” he says.

 Earlier, when Kishore had narrated his script to Sudeep, the star had shown interest in it. Sudeep was also supposed to direct the remake of the Telugu flick Attarintiki Daredi. However, Kishore will now be taking over the directorial responsibility to remake the Telugu film and Sudeep will only act in the film. Is the director happy with the idea of a remake? “Every film with a star is a challenge and this film with Sudeep just happened to be a remake. And as an actor, Sudeep has always brought freshness to his films, even remakes. Be it an original story or a remake, my film becomes my canvas. Now I am fighting my own battle in directing a good film that will satisfy my guru,” he says.

 We hear that Sudeep has given a free hand to Kishore and will not be interfering in the making. “I can always go to him for suggestions. The film can only get better with discussions. Though he doesn’t like to interfere, he will be there to guide me,” says Kishore.

 “We just had the script pooja on June 19 and are planning to go on floors from August. The film in Telugu was completed in 65 days. We are planning to finish the remake in 85 days. We will soon finalise the rest of the starcast and technicians and make an announcement,” he says.
