But I needed someone whose casting itself sounds unique and that’s when I thought why not cast Prabhudheva sir because he has not done anything this sort before,” told us in an exclusive interaction. Speaking about the film, the young director says,”This film is a thriller genre with no dialogues. There are some challenges that need to be corrected; the performance and the technicality need to be taken care of, like the visuals, sound, the music, and editing. And obviously, the first thing that comes is performance. All the actors including Prabhudheva sir have done great performances.”
