Shooting for the multistarrer “Chowka” started on January 7, 2016 and in a pleasant coincidence for the crew it was wrapped up on January 7, 2017.
When the shooting was wrapped up around 2am, producer Yogish Dwarakish made sure that no ash pumpkin, or kumblakai, was broken. It is a tradition to break the kumblakai after completing a film’s shoot.
Even Dwarakish Chitra banner had followed this tradition for decades.
However for “Apthamitra”, they did not do so and they have continued the trend until now.
The budget of the film is said to have gone far above the original estimates. The film has Prajwal, Prem, Diganth, Vijay Raghavendra, Priyamani, Aindrita Ray, Bhavana and Deepa Sannidhi in lead roles.
