Actor Ranveer Singh
Lucia is now a popular Kannada film and all credit goes to its director Pawan Kumar. “It feels great to be at the Bengaluru International Film Festival. After travelling the world with the film, it’s only right that the movie is played at its home film festival as well. It’s a humbling experience to watch people fighting to get into the theatre to watch this film,” he says.

Lucia was crowd-funded and Pawan is confident of returning to funding model again. The Hindi make of Lucia is next on Pawan’s mind, after Fox Star bought the rights to the film. “The pre-production has just started. I’ve been to Mumbai once so far. The process is a little slower when compared to the making of the Kannada film. It’s also an incredulous experience— from a budget of ` 50 lakh for the Kannada Lucia, the budget will now be around ` 50 crore. I don’t know what I’m going to do with all that money,” he exclaims.

“A lot of actors including Ranveer Singh are being considered,” adds Pawan, on further prodding.
