Parapancha is Krish Joshi’s second film after Gandhi Smiles, for which he got a Best Film Award at the Bengaluru International Film Festival. Joshi has 15 years of experience working with international brands in Mumbai and he has also made a lot of documentaries.
Parapancha is produced by Joshi’s close friend Yogaraj Bhat. “Though I have never been associated with him in his films, we had a close bonding and kept discussing different concepts and scripts. When I narrated Parapancha, he decided to produce it,” says Joshi who is confident about his film. “The screenplay is unconventional and never tried before in the Kannada industry, which will be interesting,” he adds.
Parapancha, according to Joshi, is a replica of the world. Whatever happens in the world, will be presented in this film, but with a cinematic angle.
“I really can’t talk about the screenplay because it reveals a lot of my story. It is a commercial film with four songs written by Yogaraj Bhat and one by Jayanth Kaikini,” says Joshi.
The director who started shooting from April 14 has roped in Diganth and Ragini Dwivedi to play the lead along with some interesting ensemble actors.
“Ragini plays a call girl and Diganth is a server at a bar. They are not paired together in the movie. Bhavana of Gaalipata fame is acting opposite Diganth and senior actor Ashok will mostly be seen opposite Ragini. The film will also see Yogaraj Bhat and Ananth Nag in important roles,” he reveals.
News about Diganth doing a nude scene in the film has gone viral on the social media. Director Joshi says it is a part of the character’s spiritual journey.
“This will be Diganth’s career best role. He plays a character who negotiates the space between man and god,” he explains.
