Last year we had brought you exclusive shooting details of the Shoojit Sircar directed, Amitabh Bachchan starrer, JOHNNY MASTANA, earlier titled SHOEBITE, from Himachal Pradesh's capital Shimla, to Kullu-Manali, right down to the Taj City of Agra. And here is more news on that front.
The director Shoojit Sircar, along with his cast and crew is once again in the hill state of Himachal Pradesh to complete some portions of the shooting which needed to be shot here. And after a day's rest the unit got to work with scenes involving lead actress, Sanjida Sheikh.
As per the director, megastar Amitabh Bachchan has already completed his portions and so he did not make it to Manali, where the unit is staying. However onlookers and fans of the megastar were quite disappointed to hear that Bachchan is not there and that it his duplicate (actor Bobby) who had been assigned the job of completing a few scenes that required Bachchan. Shots of scenes in graveyard and the apple orchards were filmed, and some portions which involved Bachchan's childhood day's scenes were also canned.
The director Shoojit is happy to be back in Himachal Pradesh and said that the beauty of the hills is absolutely breathtaking and the air refreshing and healthy. He also confirmed that the shooting is over and the entire unit will be back in Mumbai any time.
