"I would thank my mom as she is the sole supporter for whatever in regards to film making"
Who was your inspiration to enroll in short film making?
There are two people who inspired me in life ...one is actor Vijay and the other would be director Selvaragavan. I am a fan of actor Vijay, right from my childhood my dream is to direct a movie for him. And I admire director Selvaragavan for his movie making style and my inspiration to direct movies came from him. I would like to see myself as a good director in the future. I want to experiment in each and every movie and make sure every movie of mine is unique and different.
Yes I would consider Bejjar movie as an amateur work as it was our first short film and the camera work was little amateur. But as Film Industry is all about learning. We make sure we improve ourselves in each and every movie we work on.
Judges tagged the movie as an entertainment one and they appreciated me for the fun factor and the comedy timing in the movie. They said it was a complete Entertainment Package.
"I’m learning each and every day and I know this industry is all about learning and implementing things."
Only 3 films have been directed by me under the banner of Studio Sang and apart from that there are other movies those are under studio sang and they all were done for editing, title design and vfx works.
"I’m gifted to have a mom like this."
In a scale of ten, how do you rate yourself and your works..
I would rate myself as 7 because I’m learning each and every day and I know this industry is all about learning and implementing things. I feel I have lots to learn and prove in this industry everyday is a new day for me and it’s a new challenge for me as well.
Were your parents supportive for your involvement?
Yes I would thank my Mom as she is the sole supporter for whatever In regards to film making. She supports every move of me and encourages me in achievening this. I would like to thank her and feel I’m gifted to have a mom like this.
Being a Student I have directed 4 short films so far and have worked on 15 short films as a DOP, Associate .Director, Editor, Designer and Etc. Would love to establish myself as a director in the future.

We have a unique team called “ Kisa Team” who are involved in Artists, Lighting, Assistant Directors, Cameraman, Lyric writers and etc. Studio Sang originated from Kisa Team.

" ..make the Indian cinema industry reach international standard "
What were the difficulties faced by you during short film making?
The biggest difficulty in short film making would be the cost part. As short films are always quoted with low budgets in a specified time frame. And the other challenge would be getting a heroine to act in short film for the minimum budget. A part from this I don’t feel anything as a challenge because if we have the right team to work with a short film, it can be completed easily.
My Suggestion would be to experiment in all movies you make and when it comes to movie making I feel that a director should have his own class and style and a director should touch all the genre right from comedy to tragic and from thriller to drama..I wish young film makers to keep trying different things in each and every movie and make the Indian cinema industry reach international standard.
