When I studying in Ballari, Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Satya’ was released. I decided to become director after watching that film. As I have no background support, I worked somewhere after completing my engineering. Later I decided to make different film and the result is ‘Sasesham’ and ‘Bhoo’. Even though, the film ‘Bhoo’ was not successful commercially, it brought fame to me as director.
