‘I don’t create controversies’
Director-Actor Hemanth Hegde says he never intended to create any controversy and the idea behind his tittle ‘Mattomme Shhh’ was just from a movie making point of view. In a press conference and launch of the film in a temple of Padmanabha in Bangalore, he said, “I am not interested in creating unnecessary controversies. It has been nearly 20 years since Upendra’s Shhh has been released. After that no one tried or dared to a film with that name. Once I announced that I am planning to title my film as Shhh, then five films of the same name start. What’s my role in all this,” asks Hemanth Hegade, and rightly so! He further added “I had informed Kumar Govind long back and I had also given him two options. Whether to give the title to me or to come on board for my film. But Kumar had said that he will produce a film with the title Shhh 2 and wants to do so independently. So, I renamed my film as Mattomme Shhh. I really don’t have issues with anyone.” We get your man, we do!
