The shooting of Vivek Oberoi's PRINCE OF THIEVES (also referred to as PRINCE), being produced by Kumar Taurani's Tips Music Films, is currently on in full swing in the picturesque hill state of Himachal Pradesh. The entire cast and crew, which included the lead actor, Vivek Oberoi and the director Kuki Gulati spent the whole day shooting in and around Kullu-Manali and Mandi district
The first day of shooting (Saturday) started early at five with the set being readied for the cast and at around eight o'clock Vivek and the support cast reached the location, which was erected around the famous Hanogi Mata (Devi) Temple in Mandi district near the Pandoh dam. The director Kuki Gulati, in a hired chopper, flew around the beautiful locales and also shot for a few scenes, which included aerial shots of the Pakistani army patrolling the National Highway-21.
Later Vivek too flew around in the chopper for sight-seeing as well as some action sequences. This included an attack on Vivek by the support cast, which was made to rehearse for a while before the shoot and there were a few chase sequences on the raft too, at the majestic Beas river.
Shooting went on till late afternoon. On Sunday, the shooting continued at a brisk pace in different locales of Kullu valley. Tourists and locals gathered in hordes to see the stars and shooting. These were the last few shots of the film in the Kullu-Manali valley.
As per the local coordinator, later this week the whole unit will shift to another beautiful and picturesque point, Kasol and then Shimla.
