Yet another horror from the makers of film 6-5=2. The film produced by Krishna Chaitanya and directed by KS Ashoka was a sleeper hit.
This time the producer chose to associate with Karva,a film written and directed by a debutant, Navaneet. Chaitanya says, "Though Karva is a horror film, it is more of realistic movie, which I guess, people will realise once the film is out in theatres."
Not comparing his film with 6-5=2, he says, Karva will be again a first-of-its-kind in Kannada industry. "To be honest, I was not keen on producing another horror after 6-5=2. In spite of the film becoming a brand, I was so much against taking up another horror genre because I saw at least 150 films getting ready after 6-5=2 and I was not keen to fall in the same league. But Karva script pulled me into it and I ended up investing in the film," he mentions.
Karva shot in locations of Sri Lanka, Ooty and Mysore features Devaraj, Tilak Shekar, RJ Rohit, Anisha Ambros and Anu Povammma among others
"We are now in the process of getting out with the first copy and will be reaching the censor table in a week's time, says Chaitanya, who is happy with the outcome of the film. "I am glad to have taken the right decision," he adds.
Unlike other producers, Chaitanya is personally overlooking into every detail for Karva and he says there is a reason behind it. "Since, I am giving opportunities to new directors and bringing in good talents and not stars in my film, I had to lead the team" he says.
Chaitanya is also producing another film with K S Ashoka.
