Just a few days back, we had brought you the first hand shooting report of Vivek Oberoi's PRINCE OF THIEVES (also referred to as PRINCE), a Tips Films Presentation from the picturesque Kullu-Manali valley in the hill state of Himachal Pradesh. And here is an update.
The last shooting schedule of the film in Himachal Pradesh kicked off in Manikaran, the region famous for its hot water springs and the historic Manikaran Sahib Gurudwara. The day started early with a set being erected. Most of the shooting scenes that were filmed involved action sequences and lead actor Vivek Oberoi participated in all of them. He performed some amazing stunts himself - Jumped from high cliffs, fought bare handed in the midst the freezing, gurgling and dangerous Parvati river, rode rafts amongst ferocious waves. The action director Allan Amin was very satisfied towards the end of the day, and attributed it to Vivek's recent one month training for the same... In between all this, the unit ran into rough weather due to some thunder showers and storm. Even that was a blessing in disguise as the director Kuki Gulati was successful in capturing some scenes that required filming in dust and storm.
As we file this report, the unit is expected to return back to Bombay, after completing the Himachal schedule.
