Char­ac­ter Build­ing

India Today - - COVER STORY -

Dag­gu­bati reads ex­ten­sively but most of the books are linked to films that he works in or de­vel­ops. He looks for new sto­ries wher­ever he goes. “Dif­fer­ent kinds of sto­ries get me ex­cited and I am con­stantly ideat­ing when I am trav­el­ling; some­times even in the mid­dle of con­ver­sa­tions,” he says. A story that he is cur­rently fas­ci­nated with is that of Hi­ranyakashy­ap. “Our In­dian mythol­ogy is so full of en­chant­ing sto­ries and Amar Chi­tra Katha is prob­a­bly the first il­lus­trated in­tro­duc­tion to th­ese sto­ries for most In­dian chil­dren,” he says,

adding that he is work­ing closely with the comic house to bring Hi­ranyakashy­ap to the screen, a project that Dag­gu­bati will also fea­ture in.
