There is another interesting project in the pipeline from Harsha Entertainers in association with lyricist -turned-director Arasu Anthare. 

It has an amusing title Secondu Bucketu 
Balcony and the director has picked an  interesting subject around black ticket sellers. The director, who debuted with Love in Mandya, had taken a two-year break before starting on his second film.

Arasu tells City Express that it was inspired by real life. “This is from an incident that took place in Mysuru, involving all those who sell black tickets.

I decided to show their lifestyle on silver screen,” says the director, who took time off to study their behaviour. “I have closely observed these touts, even as a child.”

One poster from the director shows single-screen theatres that keep red buckets filled with sand inside the hall. “It is very much a practice in Mysuru and Mandya theatres, even today,” he says. “These buckets are kept below the screen and they mark from where ‘Gandhi class’ starts... Tickets were sold as for Bucketu, Second class and Balcony.” 

The makers are planning to go on floors from March 2 and the director is bringing in only theatre artistes for the film. “They have undergone training to handle the various characters,” he says.

Arasu has planned the release of motion poster before going to the floors, and he calls it ‘natty poster’. “Our film is pucca local,” he says.    Music is by Anoop Seelin and cinematography by Abhishek Kasargod.
