Director Sumana Kittur is on cloud nine. This Friday has turned out to be a memorable day for one of the best known female film directors in Sandalwood. She returned to Bangalore from Mumbai on Thursday evening, but on Friday, the good news came from Mumbai itself. Maverick Bollywood producer Ram Gopal Varma sourced the DVD of Edegaarike a few days ago. He watched the movie on Thursday and called up Sumana on Friday. He got to know about the film from an author who is translating books of Agni Sridhar and Ram Gopal Varma. Varma first messaged Sumana on Friday morning and spoke to her in the evening. He was all praise for the work.
Sumana said that Varma was surprised that a female director picked up such a subject. He asked details about the book and its author Sridhar, on which the film is based on. Varma told Sumana that making such a film in a limited market was praiseworthy and took special note of the recording and background score by Sadhu Kokila. He has promised to meet Sumana shortly. So is Sumana set for a Bollywood innings? We will know shortly.
