Yes, the first director isn’t feeling the heat and is quite confident about his debut film
Director Karthik G. Krish, former assistant of ace filmmaker S. Shankar, is making his directorial debut with upcoming Tamil romantic-comedy Kappal. He says he’s not under any pressure.
“I have to prove myself as a director and not as an assistant director that I used to be. Of course, I credit whatever I’ve learned so far to Shankar sir, but I don’t feel pressurised,” Karthik told IANS.
Krish had assisted Shankar in Tamil films Enthiran and Sivaji.
“There are always expectations from people who invest time and money in your project. Being Shankar sir’s assistant doesn’t change it. I think it’s part and parcel of every director’s journey. I only wanted to give a good film and I think I have made one,” he said.
The film, which has been produced by I Studios, features Vaibhav Reddy and newcomer Sonam Bajwa in the lead roles.
