After successfully raising funds from the general public for the national award winning film "I Am", producer duo Sanjay Suri and Onir are again taking the crowd-funding route for their new venture - a love story of a 14-year-old Dalit boy and an upper-caste girl.
The producers have taken the crowd funding route as they want the audience to be a part of the filmmaking process. A target of Rs 50 lakh from public audience has been set and people can contribute via the film's website.
"Apart from raising funds from general public, we have support of the National Films Development Corporation of India (NFDC). We've also received grant from Goteborg International Film Festival, Sweden and are in discussion with international co-producers," says director Bikas Ranjan Mishra.
