A reel-life director

National Award-winning actor Sanchari Vijay is playing the role of a film director in his latest release, 'Nan Magale Heroine'. He says that this movie has, in a lot of ways, given wings to his dream of directing a movie in real life. "I have always wanted to direct a film someday and this role came at the right time because it has given me a chance to understand and learn the basics of what goes on behind the camera," says Vijay.

All of Vijay's earlier films such as 'Naanu Avanalla...Avalu', 'Oggarane', 'Killing Veerappan' and 'Cinema My Darling' are proof of his love for working in experimental roles. Talking about his character in 'Nan Magale Heroine', Vijay says that he was a little apprehensive about taking up the project at first, but he realised that the director had written the script so well that none of the scenes seemed out of place. "Every single actor in this project has been handpicked and has a prominent role to play. I play a director who is assisted by eight to ten people. I realised that a director's job is not an easy one because he spends most of his time managing people and their emotions," adds Vijay.

He says that his role has also given him the opportunity to experience the emotions that a director goes through. "A director has to make the film, handle success and flops and put up with the tantrums of the producers. He has to strike the right balance without compromising on anything," adds Vijay. In addition to loads of comedy, the film has romance and sentiment as well. "The romance starts when the producer wants his daughter to be cast in the film made by me. I am supposed to help her emote her role the way I envision it. But as a director, I am unhappy with her performance. But I am forced to cast her just because she is the producer's daughter," says Vijay. He adds that the film throws light on the aspirations of everybody who wants to be a part of the film industry.

"Everybody who wishes to be a part of the film industry will be able to relate to the emotions shown in the film. The message that it isn't easy to survive and make a mark in the world of cinema is conveyed well through the film," informs Vijay.

The actor will also be seen in the Kannada-Tamil bilingual film titled 'Phira ngipura' where he portrays three different shades. In another project titled 'Krishna Tulasi', he plays the role of a visually-impaired person.
