Despite many hiccups due to the vagaries of the weather, director Vipul Shah was keyed on Kullu-Manali for one of the highlight retro song of his upcoming ACTION REPLAYY. In fact the shooting of the film was complete in all respect barring the Akshay-Aishwarya song, "Tera Mera Pyaar". Finally, around mid July, the melodious song was canned!
Curious to know why Vipul chose to ignore many other hill stations, and preferred to wait for the weather Gods to improve the climate, we queried from Vipul and he had his strong reasons. "Actually the setting of the song is such that it required a lot of natural beauty, majestic hills (in the background) and in particular I wanted 'Khuli khuli vaadiyan (open and expansive valleys)' like it was during the early days. The only place that I found all this was Manali. Once you see the song you will understand."
Well, having explored every nook and corner of the Valley of God, the 'Dev Bhoomi', known to the world as Kullu-Manali, we couldn't agree more with Vipul!
