Director Raam Reddy says the National Award for his Kannada directorial debut “Thithi”, which has been internationally feted, is a dream-come-true-moment for his team as the film is getting ready for its release in theatres.
“After such an incredible journey internationally, winning a National Award is a dream come true. With major awards going to mega blockbusters like ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, and with the backing of distributor Suresh Productions, we are now confident and very hopeful for the commercial potential of ‘Thithi’,” Reddy told IANS.
“Thithi”, a film about how three generations of men react to their grandfather’s death, had already won top awards at Locarno International Film Festival.
“With our release slated for the end of April or early May, and with the support and belief of stars such as Rana Daggubati, we feel positive about ‘Thithi’ finding a wide audience in Karnataka and across the country,” he said.
