Because of crowdfunding, more than 400 auto drivers have met up to transform into producers, with each of them putting whatever they can into the film.
What’s more, it’s not a show-solid spending plan either. The auto drivers have contributed anyplace between Rs 1,000 and Rs 2 lakh each and are spending Rs 2 crore on the endeavor…
They have managed to rope in A R Shan, son of the legendary director A R Babu, to direct the film titled “RGV”.
The makers can contract top craftsmen and group for the motion picture, for example, on-screen character Aru Gowda (of Muddu Manase distinction) and performing artist Sudha Belawadi. Kaushik Harsha is giving the music.
The activity was taken up by Nagraj, who’s known as ‘Auto Nagraj’ in the Kannada film circles, and is a surely understood film marketing expert alongside being an auto driver. As he told The Times Of India, it was a blessing from heaven. Talking about the subject of auto drivers subsidizing a film, he said,
Every day we hear about a realtor becoming a film producer or a software engineer becoming a director or actor. Then why not auto drivers who are the first people to watch Kannada movies when they release. Even before AR Shan told me about his plan for a film, I discussed the idea of producing a movie with many of my auto driver friends; now 400 are on board. By the time we finish, we’ll have nearly a thousand auto-drivers producing the movie.”
Interestingly, the movie is not about auto drivers!
As the director told TOI, “RGV is a dark comedy. This genre is new to Kannada. Aru gets a very classy and never-before-seen role to play. It is not just a love story, not just a mass story, and not just a class story…..
