The director of upcoming Telugu film Panchami- Sujatha Bourya loved experimenting right from her childhood. She was keener on doing a film beyond routine and that prodded her to plan debut film Panchami with only one character. The film features Archana in the lead role and presented by Meghana and Harsha under the banner of Idea Movie Creations. D.Srikanth is the producer and currently the film is undergoing post production work. This film is scheduled to release on third week of this month and here are some interesting facts about the new director.

Sujatha Bourya completed DFA in Chennai and later worked with Geetha Krishna in an ad agency.  After working in direction for some years, she got a chance to work as assistant director to Krishna Vamshi for the film Chakram. Panchami is her first directorial venture and she owns an ad agency as well. When she thought of the subject for her new film, she wanted to do something very different.  After discussing with the story writer Dasari Gangadhar about the same, the story was ready. The story of the film deals with a Female Photographer who plans to exhibit her work and attain a gold medal with it. On a Photo shoot assignment she goes to a forest and the rest of the story is about what sort of challenges she would face. Coming to the casting, Sujatha wanted somebody without a star image and hence casted Archana for the role. For an interesting film like this, graphics work is one of the highlights.  Graphics made sure that the film is not monotonous with just one character. Though the budget exceeded the estimate, the producer was kind enough to extend it and make a quality film.

Sujatha’s upcoming project is a cute love story with a big budget hero. The story is ready and she will be starting the work on it from coming month.
