10 Kannada Filmmakers Who Have The Skills To Go Pan India

Going pan-India films is the newest inclination in South Indian movie circles. After the phenomenal triumph of Baahubali, filmmakers down south are exploring markets across the country consistently. While Saaho and KGF took the identical track, a few imminent films like RRR and Salaar are also going pan-India.

Quality and wide relatability of the content is the principal qualification standard expected for movies to release in multiple languages. Rajamouli and Prashanth Neel have been prosperous with it, and there are a couple of other Kannada filmmakers who are also competent in accomplishing that.


Duniya Suri

Duniya Suri’s films have a realistic touch and regularly exhibit trickeries in the screenplay. Such content can be appealing from a broader perspective, with viewers across the country looking for fresh concepts consistently.


He is one of the first filmmakers to actually find success with one movie in multiple languages. The Bollywood audience has been unlucky not to witness Upendra’s mastery yet. If Uppi takes up such a project, victory is guaranteed.

Pawan Kumar

Pawan Kumar has directed in various languages but none of them have been pan-India subjects. The kind of potential he has, Pawan must actually consider venturinga movie that can take a pan-India route.


Hemanth M Rao

Hemanth M Rao was one of the screenwriters for Sriram Raghavan’s brilliant thriller Andhadhun. His two offerings so far, GBSM and Kavaludaari, have been remade to other languages. So, he definitely has it in him to take up a subject that can release simultaneously in various languages.

Rishab Shetty

Rishab is a man of experiments, and therefore, he could have the thought-process that is demanded to please a wide viewer base. It won’t be a surprise if he actually takes the track in the coming months.

Rakshit Shetty

Rakshit has just directed one movie so far, but Ulidavaru Kandanthe is more than enough to judge his skills. Although a film featuring him as an actor, Avane Srimannarayana, tried to pull off the trend, it didn’t materialize as intended. May be, Rakshit could take up the megaphone to do the job now.



Well, he is all but confirmed as Yash’s next director. If Yash is there, it is very likely that it would be a pan-India subject. That would allow Narthan to showcase his abilities to an extended array of the public.


Mansore has proved his capacity to direct films that can impress people coming from all walks of life. His first two movies did well in winning many trophies at the national level. He can be relied upon to elevate a subject to the pan-India standard.

KM Chaitanya

KM Chaithanya has made a few memorable films so far, but he has somehow not attained stardom like a Prashanth Neel or a Duniya Suri. However, if you see his films, you can notice a clear trademark of the director, something that’s absolutely necessary for a pan-India film.


S Krishna

S Krishna’s films so far have all been commercial offerings. He has a keen eye for crisp visuals and slick action sequences. Hence, he can take up a pan-India project with ease.
