A large volume of what I’ve learnt about filmmaking comes from director Shanker, my guru, alma mater, and mentor. My sincere salutations to him, as we gear up to walk the talk and commence shooting, soon,” says Nilesh.
Nayanthara 75 boasts of an impressive technicians’ list. Cinematography will be by Dinesh Krishnan and art direction will be by Jacki while the film’s editing will be by Praveen Antony.
