Katha Sangama is an upcoming Indian anthology comprising seven short stories in different genres. Produced by HK Prakash and Rishab Shetty Films, the film brings together young directors, including Kiranraj, Chandrajith Beliiappa, along with Rishab Shetty who has helmed one of the stories.

While the anthology features established actors such as Hariprriya, Kishore and Yagna Shetty, the last film in it, titled Lacchavva, will be directed by newcomer A Jai Shankar and will include debut actors. This, we’re told, is the 20-minute film’s highlight. The debutant caught director Rishab’s attention with his short film, Narasimhan Phylam, after which he was brought on board for Katha Sangama. Jai Shankar says that the pattern is similar to Thithi, in terms of the filmmaking style and casting of non -actors.

“To ensure we have the right cast, I went to construction sites. After auditioning, I found the main lead in Paravva, a native of Hubbali. She plays the role of a mother in her late 40s. We also have Raghavendra, a cab driver working in Bengaluru but originally from Gulbarga. An important part is played by Beera, who works in packers and movers company,” he says.

With this episode, Katha Sangama will be done with shooting and will follow with the post-production work.
