Film with Naresh still in discussion phase: Telugu director
IANS [ Sat, Aug 31, 2013 ]
- Chennai, Aug 31 (IANS) Telugu director Indraganti Mohan Krishna says he is yet to sign a film with Allari Naresh, but he has not denied that he is in talks with the actor for a movie which is likely to go on floors soon.
"I'm discussing with Naresh, but I haven't signed him yet. In fact, I'm scouting for producers to kickstart one of my three stories that are ready to be made in to films. One among these films might be for Naresh, but we haven't zeroed in on any actor," Mohan told IANS.
"It will depend on for which of my projects I will find a producer first. If I find a producer for a project for which I have not considered Naresh, then my next film may not feature him at all," he added.
The National Award-winning director says one of his upcoming projects will be based on the Telugu book "Chivaraku Migiledi" by Butchi Babu.
"Besides the three stories, I have been trying to write a screenplay based on the novel. I'm very much interested to start working on it soon," he said.
"Chivaraku Migiledi", originally written in 1946 by Butchi Babu, is the story about a man's conflict with the society and his realisation of peace and self-knowledge in the process.
"It has a very strong message that I think will be very relevant for today's generation," said Mohan Krishna, who is currently basking in the success of his latest release "Anthaku Mundhu Aa Tharavatha".
Meanwhile, Allari Naresh is busy working on a Telugu comedy titled "Laddoo Boy" with filmmaker Ravi Babu.
