It is an open fact that the film industry is a male dominated bastion and among the 24 crafts of cinema, the segment of direction is certainly dominated by the men. But in the last few years, few passionate ladies have begun making their presence felt.
One among them is Sudha Kongara who is currently riding high with the success of her bilingual Saala Khadoos. Recently, Sudha was sharing her thoughts with the media where she revealed about her initial days of career. When she wanted to become an assistant director, she had only three names in mind.
First in that list was the maverick Mani Ratnam but if she were to not get a break from him the next best for her was the eccentric genius Ram Gopal Varma. Fortunately for her, Mani gave the entry. Point to note is, RGV being scaled to the range of Mani Ratnam goes to show the impact he created.
