Director Ashok of Pilla Jamindar fame has directed Chitrangada with Anjali in lead role. The movie which has been in production many months is finally releasing this weekend on March 10th. Here is the latest interview with the director about the film.

What is the reason behind this delay ?

There is not much delay. At the time I narrated this script to Anjali, she was busy. According to script, shooting has to be done in US, First we thought to complete 20 days work there but it was delayed by 10 minutes and we shoot there for 25 days. After that due to prior commitments Anjali took 6 months break. In the mean time, we released a small teaser. With that everyone is thinking that movie was delayed long.

What is Chitrangada about

I cannot reveal much about the film. But one thing I can say confidently is that, this subject was never touched in world cinema. It deals with a point which South Asian countries believe in.

Is it a horror movie ?

Yes there are horror elements in it. But at the same time, it is a thriller, it generates fun. Saptagiri played full length role.

What is the reason behind naming the film Chitrangada ?

Anjali in this movie plays the role of a stubborn, independent girl which our history says that Arjuna's wife Chitrangada possess too. Our heroine's name in the movie is Chitrangada.

Is Chitrangada a multi lingual movie or just dubbed into Tamil ?

No we went with canning scenes two times. Local artists will play their roles while Anjali is common.

Tell us about Anjali

Anjali is very dedicated and passionate about movies. She worked very hard for the movie and it can be seen onscreen. As per demand, Anjali has to wear small dresses and she did those scenes in freezing temparatures. I was blown out seeing her dedication.

About music

As Chitrangada is a horror entertainer, it is mainly based upon re-recording. I used to travel with Selva Ganesh and when I went him to narrate subject, I saw his son doing a Tamil movie. Being impressed with his work, I made him a part of movie too. This is probably first time that father and son together worked for a movie.

Give us an update on Bhagmathi

Firstly I want to give clarity that Bhagmati is not a historical movie or not related to Hyderabad's history. It is a new genre script. Shooting is almost over except for a few days shoot. It will release after Baahubali 2.

That concludes our interview with Ashok wishing him The best with Chitrangada and his future endeavours.
