Actors turning directors or the other way around is not new to Kannada cinema. There are multiple examples, whether it is Upendra, Sudeep, Ramesh Aravind, Rakshit Shetty, Raj B Shetty, Rishab Shetty, etc. So, it is no surprise that Golden Star Ganesh also harbours dreams of turning director someday. Speaking to an online channel, during the promotions of his upcoming film, Triple Riding, which releases in theatres on November 25, Ganesh said that he would love to try his hand at direction.
He's been an accidental director once earlier, when he directed portions of the film Kool. But as a full-fledged venture, he would like to direct a thriller, he says. “Usually, when I discuss my films with the creative team, I give them suggestions, but once I am on the set, I don’t interfere. From then on, the film should have only one captain and I remain a director’s actor. My job ends at doing what is expected of me, with the odd improvisation here and there,” he says, adding, “If and when I do direct, I will not make a love story, even though I’ve made my career on that genre. I would rather make a thriller. I cannot think of making a love story or even writing the script for one. If someone else tells me a love story, I can come up with suggestions to improve it, but by myself, I could not come up with a decent romance. Different people have different talents, for instance, Yogaraj Bhat has a knack for writing reverse dialogues, while Preetham Gubbi is the master of soft, heart-touching love stories. Mahesh, the director of Triple Riding has a complete pattern to his films, while Suni presents fun with some emotions. When I direct, I will make a thriller,” he says.
