Sathish Ninasam to don director’s cap

After a decade’s experience as an actor, he will now wield the megaphone for a script written by him; film to roll from March 2019

Published: 24th December 2018

Armed with a theatre background, Sathish Ninasam, who made his entry into the Kannada industry 10 years ago, will now turn director for a feature film. Interestingly, the script of this yet-to-be titled project has been written by the actor himself.

The first-time director’s film is apparently an 'entertainer which blends emotions and humour', and the makers have planned to officially launch the title on New Year's Day. The teaser will be out in February. “It is my long-standing wish which has finally been fulfilled. I had two-three stories written down, but this particular script interested me the most. Even my friends — at least 50 of them — who heard the story felt that it was the right one to launch with,” says Sathish, who is also one of the co-producers of the film.

Before he takes the plunge, the artiste is awaiting the release of his two Kannada films - Chambal and Godhra. In addition, his debut project in Tamil is also currently rolling. “We are planning to start shooting for my first directorial in March,” he says.
