Scripting should be given ample time: filmmaker Jaya

Chennai, Jan 13 (IANS) Three years after her successful Telugu directorial debut “Lovely”, director B. Jaya, who is ready with her next project, says one should not compromise on time when it comes to scripting as it’s a creative process.

“One of the reasons why I didn’t immediately make a film after ‘Lovely’ was I was busy scripting my next film. I feel scripting is not a race against time. It’s a creative process and it should be given all the time it requires,” Jaya told IANS.
Jaya said she could have easily cashed in on the success of “Lovely”.
“Thanks to the success of my first film, producers were willing to bet on me. But I didn’t want to make films in a hurry. I took a break and finished working on two scripts. I hope to have both these films released this year,” she said.
This year, Jaya will direct Telugu comedy “Thokkudu Billa” and romantic-drama “Kalisundama Conditions Apply”.
