Simple Superstar

Nov 8, 2013 @ 9:50 pm

Filmmaker in Person!
Wilbur Sargunaraj, India’s first YouTube star, makes his feature debut! Witness the creative genius of this “champion for the common man,” as he takes on bullies in the street, counsels young lovers, and sings about the mouth-watering “Chicken 65!” Through all the twists and turns, Wilbur delivers a sharp reading of India’s divise class and caste structures. Part autobiography, part road trip, and part instructional video, this wacky musical will have you laughing and cheering for the simple man from Southern India. The film was entirely crowd-sourced, and the cast and crew is made up of Sarunaraj’s social media followers.
