With ‘Sammohanam’, which is steady at the ticket counters, Indraganti Mohana Krishna has once again proved that he is one the finest writers of this generation. He admits that he enjoys writing the most. “Along the post-production, I enjoy writing the most. Shooting is tough and tension-filled because you want to meet your vision and there are factors like time, money and dates (of actors) which determine the progress,” he told us, while adding that it takes six months for him to pen a proper screenplay. “I don’t have a writing team as I do everything by myself. Generally, I take two months to complete my first draft. ‘Sammohanam’ was my 13th draft.”

The director, who will be on a one-month break post he is through with the promotional campaign of the last Friday release, adds that he goes to the sets with a bound script. “I don’t write anything on the sets—except for changing a word if an actor finds it difficult to pronounce or improvising a little, language-wise. For ‘Sammohanam’, Aditi Rao Hydari had a problem with the climax as she felt it was too long for her, so I compressed it a bit.”
