Here’s why a popular director was furious with Anu Emmanuel
Hyderabad: Director Mysskin has created his signature style with the choice of films that he has made since the start of his career. His recent creation, Psycho, graced the screens on January 24 and has been receiving mixed reviews from the critics and audience alike. The film, which features Udhayanidhi Stalin, Nithya Menen and Aditi Rao Hydari in the lead roles, is based on the story of Angulimala. The director and the rest of the team have been going all out in promoting the film in various forms of media.

During one of the interviews with a popular television channel, Mysskin was asked whether he faced any difficulties while directing two women in the film. The director denied and said that Nithya and Aditi had only one scene with each other. However, he said he faced during the shooting of Thupparivaalan (Detective in Telugu). The film, which had Vishal, Anu Emmanuel and Andrea Jeremiah as the leads, is inspired by the iconic Sherlock Holmes.

Mysskin said, “I didn’t face any issue in Psycho. But, it happened during the shooting of Thupparivaalan. Anu Emmanuel and Andrea Jeremiah were shooting for their combination scene. While Andrea wore jeans and a T-shirt, Anu wore a kurta. So Andrea told her to watch her step as her kurta might get stuck. But, she got furious and asked Andrea to mind her job. I got really angry and irritated.”

He further added, “Later, I took her aside and blasted her. I told her that Andrea is a lot more experienced than you and all she did was to ask you to watch your step. I was so furious that I wanted to smash a pumpkin on her head.”

Mysskin concluded saying that if the heroines are mature, problems won’t erupt.
