Chowkidhar, Ganesh’s next film, is a story sans politics, says director
The project directed by Chandrashekar Bandiyappa is creating hype with its title itself
The term Chowkidhar has become synonymous with Indian politics now, and this is also going to be the title of Ganesh’s upcoming project, which will be directed by Chandrashekar Bandiyappa. However, the director clarifies that the title and the story have no political connections, and that it’s a family story. “The title goes well with the story and holds the subject together. That’s why we decided to go with it,” says Chandrashekar.
An official announcement about the project, made under the banner of Fan Fare Entertainment, will be out soon.
The film’s first half will show Ganesh as his normal self, while the latter half will feature the actor as a 55-year-old man. The director, who has co-directed a couple of Ganesh’s projects, worked on the subject keeping the actor’s strengths in mind. “The character in Chowkidhar is something hatke for the actor,” Chandrashekar says.
The director came to limelight with Sriimurali starrer Rathaavara, which completed 125 days at the box office.
Meanwhile, Ganesh, who is gearing for the release of Gimmick, which is now in the post-production stage, will start dubbing for Vijay Nagendra’s debut directorial, Geetha.
