It was Kannada matinee idol late Dr Rajkumar who had emphasised on the importance of eye donation programme. Later, Pooja Gandhi was seen appealing public not to bury or burn eyes after the death. Many awareness programmes were held to promote the eye donation, now Sandalwood is gearing up to spread the message.

Now, Nagendra Rao, an educationist, has come forward to convey a message to the people on the importance of eye donation. Rao has provided finance to make a film, See... U—to convey this message.  “As of now, I am associated with various schools in Bangalore Rural district. I had decided to make this film with an intention to take the message on eye donation on a big scale,’’ said Rao.

debut as a director with See... U. Earlier, Durgaprasad attempted to handle the megaphone for film Hadagu but the project did not take off due to some financial problems. “I am grateful to Nagendra Rao for giving me an opportunity to direct this film. It is a love story with a message to society,’’ says Durgaprasad.

He said that the shooting for See... U was held at Sringeri, Mangalore and Kundadri for 35 days. “It was too tough for us to do shooting in the forest area. There were occasions when we had to carry the shooting equipment on our shoulders,’’ narrates the director.

U, Vaibhav said that had learnt a lot during the shooting of this film. “I escaped from being injured on three occasions during the shooting.
