Rishab Shetty: Katha Sangama will redefine the perspectives of moviegoers
The director talks about the experimental anthology, which is set for release this Friday
Director Rishab Shetty feels that Katha Sangama will redefine the mindset of the audience. He defines the anthology as 'seven films for the price of one'. "This will also enable them to change their perspective on movie-making."
He dedicates this film to legendary director Puttanna Kanagal, whom he calls a university. "I was fortunate to meet photographer Ashwath Narayan, who had worked with Puttanna and owns the Pragathi Studio. He told me a lot of stories about the ace director and this inspired the climax of Sa Hi Pra Shaale, which was shot in a single take.”
Rishab obviously has a lot of love for Puttanna. “I like the way he builds his characters and handles emotions. Making an anthology with the same name as his classic film feels like a fitting tribute.”
Rishab is jointly producing the film with Prakash HK and Pradeep. The film has been made under the banner of Shree Devi Entertainers, which first brought out Anup Bhandari’s Rangitaranga. The production house is also collaborating with Pushkar Films for Avane Srimannarayana.
