Krishna, who was happy to get feedback from his peer, says, “Sivakarthikeyan watched the film, found my number, introduced himself through a message, and congratulated me. I called him back and he said Love Mocktail was a lovely film, which is fun and also filled with emotions. I was curious to know whether he understood the language, and he said yes, to a certain extent, and added that subtitles came in handy.”
Krishna continues, “Watching the film and saying it is nice is a good gesture. But going to the extent of finding out the number and calling me to praise it is a big thing.”
The actor-director is thrilled that Love Mocktail has reached audiences across the globe. “I have got calls from citizens of Bangladesh and a lot of people from Europe. This clearly shows that cinema has no language barrier, and good work is always appreciated, irrespective of the place, time and the platform it is watched on. This feedback from celebrities and viewers is an encouragement,” says Krishna, who is now busy scripting a sequel to Love Mocktail. “I am working towards coming up with an interesting plot,” he says.
Love Mocktail features Milana Nagaraj, who also co-produced the film along with Krishna. The film also stars Amrutha Iyengar, Abhilash, Rachana Inder, and Kushi Achar, among others. It has music by Raghu Dixit and cinematography by Sri Crazy Mindz.
