Published: 03rd November 2019

Katha Sangama,  an amalgamation of seven stories, brings together an equal number of directors, music composers, and cinematographers along with a host of artistes. The film, conceived by Rishab Shetty, is a tribute to the popular director of Kannada film industry, Puttanna Kanagal. The veteran director's anthology, bearing the same name, consisted of three short stories, and starred Rajinikanth as one of the leads. 

The 2019 Katha Sangama becomes the second film in Kannada that is based on short stories. The film is produced by  K Prakash under the banner of Shree Devi Entertainers in association with Pradeep NR and Rishab Shetty. The short stories are directed by Kiranraj K, Shashi Kumar P, Chandrajith Belliappa, Rahul PK, Jai Shankara, Karan Ananth, and Jamanadagni Manoj.

The trailer of the film, which will be soon sent to the censors, is set to be released on Monday by Puttanna Kanagal’s wife, Lakshmi. Rishab, who has spearheaded the project, initially had the plan to direct one story, but he later roped in fresh talent. “Katha Sangama is my vision, and I am glad it has turned out the way I had it in my mind. In fact, it’s better than I had visualised and these short stories are like a full-length film. This is the only proper anthology in Kannada cinema after Puttanna Kanagal's Katha Sangama. This is more urban. A few of the short stories have individually made the rounds of different film festivals, and won awards too,” says Rishab.
