R.D. Rajashekar to direct Suriya, Arya
After wielding the camera for many a hit film, cinematographer R.D. Rajashekar is all set to wield the megaphone for a change. The acclaimed lensman is planning to start his film by the end of 2008. If you wonder that it is too long a time, spare a thought for Rajashekar the cinematographer, who has his hands full. Currently, RD is involved in Vishal’s Sathyam and Singakutty which is the debut of Sivaji Ganesan’s grandson. RD (as he is popularly known in the industry) has written two scripts and plans to cast Suriya and Arya in them. However, he plans to do one film at a time. As both are action cum romantic subjects, RD should have no problem in getting the call sheets. Rajashekar is happy that his work in Bheemaa has been noticed and is in the midst of acclaim from industry friends these days. “I like doing action films. I take care that the tone of the film goes along with the story,” says this talented lensman who is a big fan of ace Hollywood director John Woo, who made action look glamorous on screen.
