Kodi - three pronged direction

KodiDuring the third week of November Kodi was in Sri Sailum. Not to direct one film, but to direct three films simultaneously. Those three films were Anji, Devi Putrudu and Jai Bhadrakali. And all these three films involve a few shots on Lord Shiva. At one point of time Kodi was seen standing at a point with two cameras, one facing east and another facing west. And Kodi was directing the film standing in between. Kodi is supposed to have a very good grip on the scripts he does and never mixed the things despite of directing three films simultaneously.
