It was his thought and creative thinking that earned Vidyasagar Gollamudi the kind of fame he never expected. Having started his career as a music and dance teacher, Vidyasagar was always interested in trying something new and that’s how he realised his passion in filmmaking.
He immediately enrolled himself in a weekend workshop in filmmaking at Annapurna International School of Film and Media. After the completion of the course, Vidyasagar has come up with an idea of making a short film titled Kurta. Even before he created hype for the film, it already reached International Film Festival and has also bagged the third prize.
“I always wanted to be different and I think differently from others. That is when the concept of Kurta has stuck my mind. I wanted to show how beautiful relations can be even when you are not so rich. This unexpected idea has culminated into a beautiful movie and I am overwhelmed with the response I got,” said Vidyasagar.
He also took up script-writing course and says that’s what helped him in coming up with a captivating script. The film also won credentials at Goa Film Festival and Chennai Film Festival. After winning accolades, the film was then uploaded to YouTube last year and has garnered around 2 lakh views till now.
“I want to make a few more films and all these would be revolving around the life of a common man. Happiness cannot always be bought and sometimes the bonding between two people is the actual source of it. This is what I want to showcase in my films. Right now, I don’t have any plans for my future. But yeah, I want to be known as a good filmmaker,” concludes the man behind the making of Kurta.
