Television anchor-turned-filmmaker Ohmkar says his next project will either be the sequel to last year’s Telugu low-budget blockbuster “Raju Garu Gadhi” or a family drama with a commercial touch.
“I’m ready with the script of ‘Raju Gari Gadhi’ sequel. People in the trade who pocketed heavy profits from the first part, want me to make the sequel. I also have a family drama script and those who’ve read it feel I should go ahead and make it as my next film,” Ohmkar told IANS.
“I’m still deciding between the two projects and I should be able to finalise by this month end,” he said.
Ohmkar is clear that by this summer, he wants to complete his next project.
“I want to have a film ready for release by the end of summer. As soon as I finalise the project by this month, I’ll immediately start the pre-production work,” he said.
Buoyed by the success of horror-comedy “Raju Gari Gadhi”, Ohmkar says he wants to take things slow.
“I don’t want to rush into a project. The success of ‘Raju Gari Gadhi’ has made me a responsible filmmaker. It has become my benchmark and anything I do in future should only supersede it,” he said.
He also said plans are on for remaking “Raju Garu Gadhi” in other languages.
