Bangalore film-maker attempts suicide

Sat, Feb 20, 2016, 11:56 AM
A Bangalore-based film-maker attempted suicide on Friday when he found no means for the release of his film, `Of Mental.'

As the case with all off-beat films, film director Sasikumar made the film with a new actor, Sandip, for his `Of Mental'. The film was ready a year ago, but it could not be released because no theatre was availabe for the director for its release. Neither could the film-maker afford the money required to buy the cinema space.

So on Friday, Sasikumar went to Kamakshya Palya bus-stand in his car, took out a water bottle in which he diluted a pesticide and drank up the compound.

Just then, his anxious wife rang up. Believing all had ended, Sasi told his wife what he had done. His wife rang up friends who reached the spot and admitted Sasi to hospital.

Sasikumar was saved. Asked why he did it, he said it was because `Of Mental' could not be released.
