Actor Ali Fazal and Amyra Dastur are having a great time shooting for a love song at the iconic Taj Mahal for their upcoming film ‘Prassthanam’. While this is the first time that Amyra is shooting at Taj, Ali has already shot at the monument for his Hollywood flick ‘Victoria & Abdul’.
Talking about their shooting experience at the monument of love, Ali Fazal told Mumbai Mirror, “I think it was Amyra’s first time at the Taj. I have shot there before for ‘Victoria & Abdul’. It was a rough ride then as several right-wingers had landed upon location to protest despite being clueless about our script. This time, because of the strict security, we couldn’t carry all our equipment inside and had to improvise. One of the shots had to be taken on an iPhone as even the camera wasn’t allowed at some locations inside.”
“I always wondered what the hype was about the Taj till I saw it with my own eyes. I was mesmerised. Being able to shoot in areas where tourists aren’t allowed was the icing on the cake and makes me love my job even more,” shared the elated Amyra.
Sharing about what this political drama is all about, Ali Fazal said, “Jackie da (Shroff) is like the Eklavya of the film and working with all of them has been great. A poster released recently says, ‘Haq doge toh Ramayan shuru hogi, chhinoge toh Mahabharat’ and that pretty much sums up a lot of the story.”
‘Prassthanam’ marks the return of Sanjay Dutt as a producer after seven years. Directed by Deva Katta, ‘Prassthanam’ is a remake of hit Telugu film of the same name. In the film, Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala play Ali Fazal’s parents. The film also stars Jackie Shroff and Satyajeet Dubey in pivotal roles.
