Sushma Veerappa, Bangalore: Look Sir, this is how we live. Documentary film project.


Sushma_2006-07_4Research project for a documentary film on the public transport of Auto rickshaw in Bangalore and the public image of the deceased superstar Shanker Nag who had iconised the character of the rickshaw driver in his film ‘Auto Raja’ in 1982. Even 17 years after the actor met with a tragic end, he lives on – his picture carefully painted on windshields of rickshaws. Their journeys  are too intertwined to be lived separately. There is something indefatigable in the manner in which both prod on.

Production: WHEN SHANKAR NAG COMES ASKING, 67 minutes, 2013, documentary film
