The Film Companion annual adda is back and this time we take it to Chennai. For our first-ever pan-India Filmmakers’ Adda, Anupama Chopra brought to the table Kamal Haasan (Vikram:- Producer), SS Rajamouli (RRR:- Director), Lokesh Kanagaraj (Vikram:- Director), Swapna Dutt (Sita Ramam:- Producer), Prithviraj Sukumaran (Jana Gana Mana:- Producer), and Gautham Vasudev Menon (Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu:- Director). These directors and producers who are the names behind some of 2022’s biggest and most successful films dissected what goes into making the mass entertainer, how they created some of the most iconic visuals in their films, how they measure risk, and the scenes which gave them sleepless nights.
