Producer Anil Sunkara is presently busy with multiple projects, with one of his films, Kirrak Party, directed by Sharan Koppisetty, releasing on March 16. “We made a good film and I am very confident that it will bring me success,” says Anil Sunkara, adding that he didn’t intervene in the filmmaking process. 

“I wanted to see the final script and dialogues but didn’t even go to the shooting spots. After the shoot was completed, I gave my suggestions in the final output, that too, on the director’s insistence,” reveals Anil, whose directorial venture Action 3D turned out to be a dud. 

 

“Actually I came to the industry to become a director. Once I went to a 3D conference along with producer Shyam Prasad, and realised that we can make a 3D film on a low budget. I wanted to try something new, and so, tried making a 3D film. And while many thought a 3D film costs nearly `100 crore, I made it for only Rs 15 crore. But the film didn’t do well and I failed as a director,” says Anil, candidly.  

He adds, “But I want to come back again and prove myself as director. I am readying a script and this time if I am confident and get the right one, I will direct it.” The film is reportedly based on the Hollywood film Hangover. 

The producer says that if this film fails at the box-office, he won’t show his face to the media. “I can’t act, so if my film doesn’t do well, I won’t come and talk about it,” he says, admitting, “Some of the films like 1: Nenokkadine and LIE are classics, but the timing of their releases was wrong. Both films released along with mass films, which the audience prefers any day.”
