Prasanth Varma is the new addition to the list of engineers turned directors. Currently he is enjoying the success of his recently released directorial venture Awe starring Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menen, Eesha Rebba, Regina Cassandra and others, produced by Natural Star Nani.
The director said, “I was a class topper in school and equally hooked to cinema. While studying engineering, I began shooting music videos. I made my first short film Deenamma Jeevitham at a time when YouTube videos weren’t going viral. In Orkut days we had more than 10 lakh views. Later I made shorts like Dialogue in the Dark and The Silent Melody (presented by Sundeep Kishan). These shorts and ad films brought me closer to the film industry.”
He further said, “I want to make a commercial entertainer with Nandamuri Balakrishna. If everything will falls into place, I will do that in the future. Recently I also got the opportunity to narrate a storyline to Megastar Chiranjeevi when Awe was starting but it is very tough task to make a movie with such a top star of Telugu Cinema. It may not happen immediately, but I will try. I may end up doing a multistarrer with these stars.”
The young director also expressed his desire to work with Victory Venkatesh.
