Posted on Aug 18 2014 | IANS
Chennai, Aug 18 : Sathya Prabhas Pinisetty, who will make his directorial debut with Tamil action-thriller "Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka" based on a true incident, says one needs to be extremely honest while recreating a story based on real-life events.
"Try to be as honest as possible to the incident. Having said that, you can't exactly replicate it because you need to take the creative freedom and add some fiction to it. You need to choose what you want to narrate before the incident and what after it," Sathya told IANS.
The incident happened in 2000 and 13 years later. Sathya decided to make into a film "with commercial elements and the soul of the incident".
"There's always a heart and soul to an incident and it is what motivates you. It's very important to not let that go when you're making a film based on it," he said.
The story revolves around an incident in the lives of four characters and its repercussions.
The film features Aadhi Pinisetty, Nikki Galrani, Mithun Chakraborty, Pasupathy, Nassar, Harish Uthaman and Shree Karthick in important roles.
