Directors Gurudatha Ganiga and Sanchith will soon be releasing their upcoming directorial Ambi Ning Vayasaayitho, which is the Kannada remake of the hit Tamil movie Pa Paandi. The Tamil film marked Dhanush’s debut as director and its success paved the way for its remake in different languages.

Speaking about directing the two veterans, Ambareesh and Suhasini Maniratnam, who play the lead roles in the film, Sanchith told the Times of India in an interview: “We actually didn’t know anyone, including Ambareesh mama, personally before the shoot. I had met him when I was a kid, but collaborating on a professional level was a first and was terrifying. Deepu mama [Sudeep] took Guru and me to Ambareesh mama’s house in Jayanagar and introduced us. We thought it would be difficult to work with him, but it was actually easy, except, of course, his timing on set, which he was very clear about from the beginning. He had said, ‘I will cooperate and do whatever you guys need to make a good film, but I will come to the set when I feel like it.’ Suhasini ma’am is someone who is strict and professional on set. She needs to have the script, her lines, an idea about her costume, etc., much before she has to report on set. She also does not tolerate unprofessional behaviour from others, and took me to task many times when I was late to her caravan or made changes to her schedule. But that was a learning for us about how much an artist needs to prepare before facing the camera. We can’t just tell them something and expect them to deliver.”

Ambi Ning Vayasaytho has Ambareesh reprising the role done by Raj Kiran and Kiccha Sudeep will be seen playing the role donned by Dhanush in the Tamil original, while Suhasini Maniratnam will enact the role done by Revathi.
