Interestingly, Mahendra is also playing a key role in the film. He says, "Black is about the colour of darkness in a man's life. This darkness brought about by corruption is found everywhere." He said that in an effort to highlight different aspects of corruption, he has focussed on farmers, education, mid-day meal scheme, liquor and government hospitals. The film has four youngsters playing college goers who are affected by the all-pervasive corruption and try to set things right.
Music has been composed by lady director Bobby. Notably, the film has an item number song penned and rendered by Karnataka State award winner Vani Saraswathi Naidu. Kari Subbu, the owner of Balaji Digital studio, has also sung a song for Black. Mahendra revealed that he is currently working on two scripts. One will be a fun-filled stylish action entertainer and the other will be a children's film.
