Beginning his film career with the role of Dark Avenger in the American thriller MOBIUS, actor, director, writer and producer Nagesh Kukunoor has come a long way from such humble beginnings.
His 1998 directorial debut HYDERABAD BLUES, which was made on a small budget, not just raked in a lot of moolah, but also captured audience's interests with its Hinglish dialogues and realistic setting.
In fact, dialogues in both Hindi and English became the hallmark of many of Kukunoor's films. His subsequent movies like TEEN DEEWAREIN, DOR and IQBAL were also well received. TEEN DEEWAREIN even bagged a Filmfare award for Best Story.
Kukunoor's next offering, 8X10 TASVEER, which releases on 3rd April, has Akshay Kumar and Ayesha Takia in the lead and promises to be a real thriller. The story, which is about a man endowed with supernatural powers that enables him to see the past, may sound quite un-Kukunoorish, but the promos and the hype created by them tells a different tale.
The film is being anxiously awaited and, while the nail-biting anticipation continues, Ganesha uses his clairvoyance, backed by Vedic Astrology, to unravel the mystery behind the film's success at the Box Office.
