Patnaik's first English film ready for release

Chennai, Sep 24 (IANS) Singer-composer R.P. Patnaik, also known for directing Telugu films such as "Andamaina Manasulo" and "Broker", is set to release his first English film "Amy", which will come out Oct 1.

"I finished 'Amy' long back, but a lot of time was spent on the post-production. It's finally releasing Oct 1 and I'm extremely happy about it. It has always been my dream to make a Hollywood film. This film will be my ticket to Hollywood," Patnaik told IANS.

"Amy", based on the Amish community in the US, is a supernatural thriller.

"The idea for the film was conceived during my frequent trips to the US. I came to learn about the Amish community, who despite being rich, live a very common life with no special amenities. I met and spent some time with them and then I was inspired to script a story around them," he added.

"It's about Amy, a girl from the community, who can see possessed souls. We spent over $2 million in the making of the film, especially on the visual effects and graphics," he added.

As a composer, Patnaik has composed tunes for over 50 films across Telugu, Kannada and Tamil. Some of his best albums include "Jeyam", "Nee Kosam" and "Santosham".

Quizzed if he has shifted base to Hollywood, he said: "I would never bid adieu to Telugu film industry. I have just taken a break and concentrating on Hollywood because it caters to large audience on a global platform. I'm also in talks for another English project."
