Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia's much talked about film SAHIB BIWI AUR GANGSTER, which was shot across virgin locations of Gujarat, has completed its 30 day back-to-back shoot. It is also the first Hindi feature film being shot on Alexa and going by the industry news, the results have come out fantastic.
Produced by Brandsmith & Tigmanshu Dhulia Films, the film stars Jimmy Shergill, Randeep Hooda, Mahie Gill, Deepal Shaw, Vipin Sharma, Shreya Narain and Deepraj Rana in pivotal roles. Noted cinematographer Aseem Mishra, with films like NEW YORK, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI, PAAN SINGH TOMAR & BAND BAJAA tucked under his belt, shot on Alexa.

Tigmanshu Dhulia and Rahul Mittra, CEO Brandsmith and producer of the film were very happy with the shoot. "Logistics was a major issue as we were shooting in the middle of nowhere, but my entire crew worked very hard and the actors have performed brilliantly. As time was a constraint, all major occasions were celebrated on location including Jimmy's birthday," said Rahul Mittra, visibly exhausted after a month long hectic schedule.
"The audience is going to love the look of the film and the actors, especially Jimmy and Randeep. I'm sure the hard work put in by everybody is going to be rewarded," added Mittra, who is aiming for a summer 2011 release.
"We look like a mess. Some of the actors have swollen faces and lips due to bee stings. These will obviously show on camera, more so since we're using a very sophisticated camera, the Alexa, for the first time in Indian cinema," said Dhulia who had to face the wrath of honey bees while shooting.
