"For a story to go truly global, it is imperative for it to stay rooted, be honest with the audience," they shared.
"The story, the script and the characters -- these are the foundations of any film and once you get that right, everything follows and everything falls in place. But if the script is not strong, the foundation is weak then the whole film falters," Gowda said.
While film production may be about investing money and taking up right choices, it is also about the correct investment of time. "Our major investment is in the form of time and we are very generous with investing time at the scripting level compared to the filming," Kiragandur expressed.
"Storytellers will have to deliver something new to the audience. Lethargy and laziness won't work in the film business now," they added.
Kiragandur and Gowda are busy with Dhoomam starring Fahadh Faasil and Aparna Balamurali, they have Raghu Thatha in Tamil starring Keerthy Suresh, Bagheera written by K.G.F. helmer Prashanth Neel, and also Tyson with Prithviraj Sukumaran.
