Art Director turns Director

Popular art director Krishnamayya, who worked for ace directors like Manirathnam, Priyadarshan and RGV in his 100-odd films, turns director with a romantic comedy, Railway Station. “I worked hard on the script to prove my mettle as a director. It will be a message-oriented love story, and is bound to attract all sections of the audience,” says producer-director Krishnamayya who says the title would be justified after watching the film. “We just shot a song number with hijras,” he adds. Actors Sudeep and Sravani play key roles in the film. Can the art director prove his calibre in a new domain? Wait and see.
