Master Kishan
  Master Kishan aiming for Guinness Record!

Master KishanSandalwood shining! Yes. On one side, new movies released each week are trying to outdo others in the box office. On the other side, filmmakers are going beyond the conventional boundaries. Furthermore, Sandalwood is attempting to create a mark on Guinness world record! What is exciting about it is, it's a nine-year-old boy who is stepping forward with this bold step. Yes. Its none other than the popularly known 'Punda' alias Master Kishan.

Son of Shrikanth and Shylaja, Master Kishan is a well-known child actor in Kannada cinema today. This talented boy is aiming beyond acting at a very young age and preparing himself to direct a film called 'C/o Footpath'. If everything goes as expected, Kishan will enter the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest director to direct a feature film. As per the current record, the youngest director of a professionally made feature film is Sydney Ling (Netherlands, born: 20 November 1959) who directed Lex the Wonderdog (Netherlands 1973), a thriller of canine detection, when he was 13 years old. Now, Kishan (born 6 January 1996) who is accepted to attempt the record by directing the movie c/o Footpath, a story based on the life of slum children and he is 9 years old. We at viggy.com wish Master Kishan all the best in his venture and hope to see him shining on the global map.

Here is the response from Guinness to Master Kishan:
