The critically acclaimed filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor has made a mark in Bollywood with movies like Iqbal and Hyderabad Blues. He has strongly believed in writing original scripts. And following Nagesh closely as a filmmaker is the Indo-American filmmaker, Atlanta Nagendra, whose debut Bollywood venture, Mumbhai Connection, releases on Aug 22.
Like Kukunoor, Nagendra is an engineer turned writer/director and has worked at some top IT companies in Atlanta. And while Kukunoor is originally from Hyderabad, Nagendra is from Bangalore.
Nagendra has already carved a niche for himself in the Kannada film industry with two movies that were blockbuster hits. Now he has set his sights on Bollywood. Mumbhai Connection hits the theaters after an acclaimed film festival run and award winnings and has a unique storyline and a catchy item number. He hopes to make it big as his fellow competitor.
