Shooting of a Movie...

Yesterday, at the mall near my home, I watched the dance sequences of a movie being shot...all through the day.

You can see some of the artistes in costume in the centre of the crowd:

Everything was being recorded...

Here are some of the artistes, dancing on cue:



You can hear my maid Lakshmi and my neighbour Pallavi exchanging observations!

For some reason, animal balloons formed a large part of the sequences:

Several were released in the evening...here's a tiger floating past!

The women artistes were accompanied by family members, who waited through the day:

Here's the van in which a lot of the props and equipment was stored...

The sign on the side of the van says, "PoorNimA hOrangaNa chitreekaraNa ghatikE". (Poornima Outdoor Movie-making Unit).

What movie? Will this scene make it to the theatres, or end up on the cutting-room floor? Who knows!
