Writer Gopi Mohan dreams of directing one day!

Chennai, April 8 (IANS) He may be one of the successful writers in the Telugu film industry with blockbusters such as “Ready”, “King” and “Dookudu” to his credit — but Gopi Mohan says his ultimate dream is to wield the megaphone.

He says he entered the industry to be a director.

“I came to the industry to direct a film. That was my goal and aim. In that process, fortunately or unfortunately, I became a writer,” Mohan said in a post on his Twitter page.

In his over a decade-long career, Gopi has worked as an assistant director on Telugu films “Vamsi” and “Nuvvu Nenu”, but he is waiting for a “good project for a long time” to take up direction.

“On the creative side, I am happy working with all my directors,” he wrote and added that it was director Sreenu Vaitla who spotted his talent.

“I respect all my directors’ talent and their hard work. Directing is a stressful job and he (director) is the one who takes all the pressure and pain.

“I had successful films with other directors, but because of Vaitlaji’s films, my talent came into limelight. I am thankful and grateful to him,” he further posted.

Gopi and Vaitla worked together on eight Telugu films in 10 years.

Vaitlaji gives freedom to a writer and he contributes a lot,” he added.

They worked together in recently released Junior NTR-starrer Telugu blockbuster “Baadshah”. Their other films include “Dhee”, “Dubai Seenu” and “Venky”.
