New age director Sekhar Kammula seems to be an exception of sorts. After rewriting box office history with 'Fidaa', any director in his place would have tried to grab one or two offers, to cash in on it, but 'Anand' director prefers to tread his own path. "Of course, he has offers but he hasn't decided on anything yet, since he is busy scripting and only then he will think of casting ," says a source, close the director. Unlike most of his colleagues who weave scripts for a particular star, who has given him dates. "Until he finalises the script, he will not think of actors, that's the way he has been working for more than a decade. No plans to change his working style," the source adds.
It is true that he made films like 'Happy Days' with newcomers and launched Rana Daggupati as an actor with 'Leader' and then joined hands with popular actress Nayantara for 'Anamika'. "Only script will determine his hero and not the other way round," the source concludes. Right now, the talented director is spending with his wife and kids and taken a break. Usually, he take two years gap, between films, but we hope, he will start a film sooner than later, because T-town is deprived of content-driven cinema. And also his peers who are delivering a bunch of flops, should take a lesson or two from 'Fidaa' director, on how script is more important for the success of a film, than having the dates of a popular star.
