Tharun Kishore Sudhir: Business can’t be the only factor to judge a film like Guru Shishyaru
The filmmaker is also co-producing Guru Shishyaru
Creative Head is a post, which is rare in cinema, and director Tharun Kishore Sudhir feels proud to hold that post in a few films including Guru Shishyaru. “To be honest, I think I was the first to create such a post in the Kannada industry when I started working with my brother Nanda (Nanda Kishore) in Rambo. The creative head is like a tuition teacher, who offers separate lessons and additional insights to what is taught in the classroom,” says Tharun, adding, “Director is the one who takes the final call, and I just give my creative input.” As a director, Tharun feels that even he would benefit from having a creative head in his projects.
Apart from being the creative head, Tharun is also making his debut as a producer with Guru Shishyaru. He is co-producing this project under his Tharun Sudhir Kreatiivez banner in association with Sharan’s Laddu Cinemas.
“It is difficult to convince producers about some scripts. Guru Shishyaru was definitely one of those challenging scripts, and the merits of it couldn’t be just looked at from the business perspective. There is a lot of trial and error in this film. So I decided to take that risk and plunged into production,” he says.
