Crowd Funded Films – We are coming across this tern very often these days. A certain number of low budget films are being made in this format for every season. According to a leading daily, 400 auto drivers has joined hands to produce a film. Auto Nagaraj who is an auto driver as well as Film Publicist made it possible.
‘Muddu Manase’ fame Aru Gowda’s next is being directed by A R Shan, who is son of veteran film maker A R Babu. When Babu approached Auto Nagaraj to narrate the story, he liked it and immediately said he’ll produce it. As per the daily, Auto Nagaraj had a plan to turn some of his auto driver friends into film producers. According to him, ‘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 shooting, nearly 1,000 auto drivers would have become producers of this film.’
That is amazing, isn’t it? They are able to collect 2 Crores for the film budget. Kaushik Harsha is composing tunes, Guru Prashanth Rai is handling cinematography, V Nagendra Prasad is penning down the lyrics, and KM Prakash is taking care of Editing. Apart from female lead, everything is set for the film and the shoot has started a few days ago in Bangalore.
