Engineer turned filmmaker, Chandrajith Belliappa will be yet another director coming out of Rakshit and Rishab Shetty’s camp. The first time director was associated with Kirik Party and will now test the waters with his Rishab Shetty’s Katha Sangama. The film is a tribute to the legendary director Puttanna Kanagal, and is an amalgamation of seven short stories.
While the first short film was helmed by Kiranraj K, the second film is directed by Chandrajith and will bring together actors Kishore, Yagna Shetty and child actor Mrudunika. The film is a story of a husband, wife and a child and the values they hold as a family.
“A daughter always looks up to her father as a hero. But he need not be heroic to prove things to his daughter. All that a father looks forward to is to give a little happiness to his daughter. Kishore portrays this father in the film while Yagna Shetty plays the role of a protective mother”
The film is in post production stage and has music by Gagan Baderiya. Cinematography has been helmed by Aravind Kashyap. Working under Paramvah Studios is a big responsibility according to Chandrajith.
“A lot of hope has been entrusted on us. There is little fear and pressure in delivering a good product. But I also take this trust as my drive to get the best work out,” says Chandrajith.
He further says, “I am basically a writer, and did not intend to become a director. Probably this is an opportunity to know how well I can translated my writing on the silverscreen.”
