Everyone loves drama, be it in cinema or real life. Based on this insight, we planted professional actors in various locations to enact scenes from real life. The audience was unaware they were staged and got completely involved in the drama. At this point, we held out boards that read, ‘For more drama, come to Ranga Shankara’ and distributed leaflets with the festival schedule. These scenes were staged in English and Kannada at 25 different locations and were captured on hidden camera. They were successful in generating interest and all the shows were sold out a week in advance.
