Producer- director Dayaal's long cherished dream of shooting major portions of a film in a rented train has been fulfilled. All the portions which required to be shot in a train has now been completed for his new film Circus. Dayaal becomes emotional when he recounts as to how this pet dream project had eluded him despite his best efforts and became possible only after Ganesh gave a nod to his project.
"The script was ready nearly a decade ago. Many people in the Kannada film industry knew that I had written this script with lot of passion and had even worked out the minutest details for the production design. But nothing was happening despite my best efforts. I had even contacted many corporate who were agreeable to make this film but were not agreeable for using the train. That was because getting the permission to shoot in trains and renting it from the Indian Railways was not all that easy. But I did not want to compromise. For nearly a decade my ambition remained a pipe dream until I had an opportunity to brief the subject with Ganesh during the making of Gaalipata for which I was an executive producer. Everything fell into place thereafter. And I am very happy that I have completely finished the train portions of the film in Mysore, Sakleshpur Railway lines. I had to rent out a train and I did take many risky shots in the train and also on the railings. All the artistes fully co-operated. I am sure these sequences will look extremely thrilling on the screen," says Dayaal who has completed the Mysore portions of the shooting for Circus. Ganesh and Archana Gupta are the leading pair in this film which has music by Emil and camera work by Shekhar Chandru.
Two songs of the film will be shot in Austria and Germany. Later the film will be shot in Bangalore for eight days before wrapping up.
