Journalist turned director Sumana Kittur who last directed the critically acclaimed 'Edegarike' based on the novel of the same name by Agni Sridhar is all set to make a comeback to direction once again. This time Sumana has selected K P Poornachandra Tejasvi's 'Kirugurina Gayyaligalu' and will be directing the novel with the same name.
Sumana herself has confirmed that she will be directing 'Kirugurina Gayyaligalu' and has also acquired the rights from Tejasvi's wife. Sumana is currently busy with the script work and hopes to launch the film by May this year.
Earlier, there were many attempts to bring Poornachandra Tejasvi's novels on screen, but none of the attempt materialised. Recently Yogaraj Bhatt had said that he would direct Tejasvi's 'Carvalo' with Prakash Rai, Rangayana Raghu and Ananth Nag in prominent roles. However, the film will be delayed as Bhatt is directing Ganesh in a new film.
