Directors are always skeptical while making a film for the right gauge of audiences. Amongst this chaos, making a horror film is naturally a big risk. Things could easily go wrong even if one aspect is not placed properly. That’s when a young director named Lohith H decided to break through the stereotypes surrounding horror stories in Sandalwood. Mummy: Save Me marked this director’s debut starring Priyanka Upendra (playing the role of Priya) and Yuvina Parthavi (playing the role of Kriya).
