National Award-winning filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor says he is excited about venturing into the Telugu film industry with his upcomingmovie but is also "terrified." Nagesh, known for directing critically-acclaimed Hindi films like "Hyderabad Blues", "Iqbal", "Dor", has already started shooting for the untitled Telugu film, featuring Keerthy Suresh.
"I've started directing it and the first schedule is over. The official launch will happen soon. I'm terrified doing a Telugu film. It's my mother tongue but I never learned to read and write in Telugu," Nagesh told PTI.
"It's one of my biggest regret. So every time I was either offered a Telugu film or thought about it, I was always terrified. It's like delving into a new language. I knew whenever I do direct, I would have to do a lot of homework," he added. The film is reportedly female centric and while Nagesh is tight lipped about the plot, he says the story has been with him for a long time.
