Kush and Kushi of Chamak

Director Suni shares with us the first-look from Chamak, a movie about a young couple and their life after marriage

Published: 11th June 2017

Suni has completed 75 per cent of shooting for Chamak. The film introduces a fresh lead pair of Ganesh and Rashmika Mandanna, who he will be introducing as Kush and Kushi. The first look of the film, shared with City Express, shows Ganesh and Rashmika performing wedding rituals. 

Suni says, "This is the story of a young couple, with Ganesh playing a gynaecolgist and Rashmika an MBA-graduate who is a homemaker, and their life after marriage. It will delve into family values." The director says that the names of characters were chosen to go with the theme. "Since this is a romantic comedy, I wanted their names to reflect that," he says. "Therefore, the lead pair will be called Kush and Kushi, for smile or happiness."

The director says that Ganesh’s character will have two shades in the film and he is now waiting for the actor to grow a beard, after which those portions will be shot. "I have a few scenes that come before marriage, when the families of two are looking for prospective matches, and that is how the two characters will be introduced."

Meanwhile, Suni had to postpone the shooting of the fight sequence, which was set around the Holi theme, because of unpredictable rains. "I need to put together the sets for this particular scene," he says. "Moreover colours will be used extensively for it, so we have to make sure there is no rain during its shoot."

The team will then do a song shoot that will be set in the beautiful landscapes of Ireland. The film produced by T R Chandrashekar has music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Santhosh Rai Pathaje.
