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!
