Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Sunday paid a courtesy call to ace Telugu film director K Vishwanath at the latter's residence in Film Nagar and enquired about his health.
The two are reported to have spent quite a bit of time together.
Speaking to mediapersons later, Vishwanath said that KCR had come to his residence unofficially and had enquired about his health. He said that the Chief Minister had called him on the phone last night, too, and chatted for some time.
Vishwanath said, "KCR visiting my home is like Lord Krishna visiting His childhood friend Kuchela in the Dwapara Yuga. He came to my home as a secret fan. He shared his literary interests with me."
"Many producers are requesting me to direct films. But I have no stamina now," he added.
He, however, asserted that he was in good health.
Vishwanath ventured into the direction field with Athma Gowravam. He won critical acclaim for his movies Sankarabharanam, Saagara Sangamam, Swati Mutyam, Swarna Kamalam among others, and is a recipient of the highest honour in India for the film industry, the Dadasaheb Phalke Award. In the later part of his career, he shifted to acting, too, and has been seen in many movies since the 2000s.
