Director Guruprasad has finally launched his next movie titled Director's Special yesterday evening (Friday, 27th August) at a grand function held at the Puttanna Kanagal Floor of Abbaiah Naidu Studios. Raghavendra Rajkumar clapped the board, while crazy star Ravichandran switched on the camera. Meanwhile, Rebel star Ambareesh unveiled Guruprasad's Kannada book titled 'Cinema Madalagada Kathegalu' and presented a copy of it to all the dignitaries on the dais.
The movie Director's Special is being produced by M Govindu. After its muhurtha function, the producer addressed the media and said, "I wanted to contribute something different to the Kannada films industry. I know Guruprasad is a wonderful director. In direction and writing story, screenplay and dialogues, he's totally different from other directors of Sandalwood. That's why I decided to team up with him to fulfill my wish."
Anoop Sileen is composing music for the five songs of the film Director's Special. The upcoming musician, who was present on the occasion, said, "Infact, Guruprasad gave me the first chance to prove my talent in films. Eddelu Manjunatha was my first movie, but it was released late due to some problem. However, I owe my success to Guru sir. Now, I thank him for giving me another opportunity in his film."
Later, Guruprasad took the mike and introduced the technical team members like Mahendra Simha, cinematographer PL Ravi, musician Anoop Seelin, choreographer Chandra Mayur and editor Kemparaju. He thanked them all for joining hands with him. He said, "If Director's Special turns out to be a big hit, then the credit goes to all these people (Technical team). If it fails at the Box Office, I'll be responsible for it. Because there are lots of things connected to literature and grammer in story, which are sure to affect the film."
When asked about the songs of Director's Special, Guru said, "We haven't finalised songs and shooting location yet. However, there will be five songs in Director's Special. Me, Jayanth Kaikini, V Manohar, Yograj Bhat and MN Vyasa Rao are writing the lyrics, which will be very interesting."
Besides direction, Guru has penned story, screenplay and dialogues for Director's Special. Earlier, he was considering roping in comedian Komal Kumar for the lead role, but he rejected the offer after listening the story. So the selection of hero, heroine and other starcast is yet to be done. Talking about the cast, Guru said, "I haven't zeroed in on any starcast yet. I'll announce the cast details in the next press meet."
However, the muhurtha of Director's Special was a grand event. Several Kannada celebrities and technicians had attended the event. Another speciality of the event was the release of Guru's book and this had made thousands of his close friends and fans gather at Abbaiah Naidu Studios on Friday evening.
Oneindia wishes all the success to director Guruprasad.
