For the first time a numerical title ‘15’ is just not the redeeming feature of Salt N Pepper production house. Kishan and Rushitha both aged 15 are playing the protagonists for the ‘15’ title with another master blaster Lakshman!

‘15’ Vayasse Onthara…. is a teen film that is also High School Musical film or Young Adult movie certainly not children film says the debutant director and intelligent Shrikanth. The family of Kishan is now in to cinema from this film ‘15’. Smt Shylaja Shrikanth was earlier music director, Master Kishan no need to mention is the Guinness Record holder for ‘Care of Footpath’ direction at the age of 12 and now Baby Kiran is also in to technicalities of film making. Baby Kiran is assisting her father in direction in which his elder brother Kishan is the male protagonist.

The joys, pains and status of mind of age group of 15 is focused in the film says Shrikanth. This is a film I had taken up for direction as Master Kishan was busy in his script ‘Kirik’. He extended his thoughts to 3D technique and that has made me to launch ‘15’ and take up direction informed Shrikanth. There will be six songs in the music direction of Siddarth Bipin.

The shooting that starts from August is spread out for two months in

Bangalore and United States of America. Shrikanth without thinking for a while for a question said he took guidance from his son as for as the technical aspects are concerned. He is too good in editing and he has given the tips for the screenplay from his experience as a student.

Shivamurthy K of USA when he had received Master Kishan in Chacago was dumbstruck when Kishan made a short presentation on ‘Kishan Visits Chicago’ and so he is there to provide all necessary for shooting in USA.

Master Kishan into his 10th standard examination plays a guitarist in the film. He has learnt the nuances of guitar play to bring in authenticity. He has also found time for martial arts, action scenes participation and learning dance too. I can cope up with the loss of school studies says the confident wonder Kishan.

Kumari Rushitha already with name and fame in the national level from modeling has acted in seven Hindi films besides 90 plus ads.

There is another wonder boy Master Lakshman who plays Kishan younger brother (there is a separate report on this young kid in these columns).

Another energetic youngster adding value for ‘15’ is Siddarth Bipin who is well versed in western music and learning Hindustani music in Chennai. A middle east Kerala Konkani Siddarth is happy to be in the company of Shrikanth and Shyalaja couple as they know music very well. That has eased my job and two tunes are already composed for ‘15’ says Siddarth. Siddarth has acted for ’90 Days’ film as young Rajiv Gandhi that is based on the assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
