VK Prakash’s daughter Kavya Prakash to adapt Unni R’s Vaanku!

Ace filmmaker VK Prakash’s daughter Kavya Prakash is set to make her debut as a filmmaker. For her maiden feature, she is adapting ‘Vaanku’, a popular short story written by Unni R. The film was officially announced last day by releasing the title poster. Interestingly, the poster features a woman performing Namaz and the title font resembles the Indian flag colour. Details regarding the cast members have not yet been announced.

Few months back, there was a controversy regarding ‘Vaanku’ when Rafeeq Mangalassery, a playwright adapted a 30-minute play titled ‘Kithab’ after being inspired by Unni R’s story. It was about a girl who wanted to become a muezzin like her father and call the azan against the will of the religious fundamentalists. Though the play stood first in the Kozhikode revenue district school youth festival, the students who acted in it were not allowed to stage it again as SDPI members staged protest citing that it hurt their religious sentiments. Unni R also came out against Rafeeq alleging that the story was interpreted out of context without his permission.

Considering all these back stories, all eyes will be on how Kavya Prakash adapts the film. Shabna Muhammed has penned the adpated screenplay and dialogues. Major Ravi’s son Arjun Ravi is the DOP and music will be composed by veteran Ouseppachan. 7J Films and Shimoga Creations are presenting the film in association with Trends Ad Filmmakers Pvt Ltd.
