Rakshit Shetty talks about his next venture titled Punyakoti and what he has been up to during the lockdown

2020 might be a hectic year for Rakshit Shetty. The actor was shooting for his film 777 Charlie right before the lockdown. He has also signed on to work on Hemanth M Rao’s next, Sapta Sagaradaache Yello. He is also working on the script for his next film Punyakoti. The actor-director has been working on the script the lockdown.
 
Talking about what he has been up to during the lockdown, he said, 'I did watch a few films and have been reading a lot of books. However, my focus has only been on writing and rewriting, and the exciting part is that I have finally cracked the plot and the structure of the film. I have completed around 40 pages and have 50 more pages to go through. I am enjoying it. I am ready to lock myself until I finish the script of Punyakoti.'
 
The lockdown seems to have given Rakshit the alone time he needs. He says, 'I would enjoy writing all alone. Writing a script from the start to the end and in one flow is a different experience, something I went through before I did Simple Agi Ondh Love Story. There were times I would stay with my friends, who would go to work from morning till evening, and I would stay at home all day.'
'It was at that time I wrote Ulidavaru Kandanthe, and the first draft of Kirik Party and Avane Srimannarayana. After that, I haven’t had the time to get into such a frame. I am experiencing it all over again,' he added.
 
Talking about Punyakoti, Rakshit said, 'The story of Punyakoti is too intense. It has a lot of layers and is not as easy as the stuff I wrote when I was an amateur. But it has put me in a different thought process for sure.'
 
He also added that he will be focusing on Hemanth's Sapta Sagaradaache Yello after finishing up on Charlie 777.
