After an outstanding performance as Chatur Ramalingam in 3 IDIOTS and then as an innocent lover in DIL TOH BACCHA HAI JI, Omi Vaidya is all set for his third big Bollywood release PLAYERS, shot earlier this year in New Zealand.
Despite a busy schedule filled with riveting car chases against Wellington's hillside terrain, Omi didn't waste any time in exploring the country's bounty of attractions along with his co-stars as well as his wife!
OMI VAIDYA in NEW ZEALAND
Omi and his wife experience white water rafting in Rotorua and tried the Auckland Sky Jump as well!
Omi says, "Filming for PLAYERS in New Zealand was a dream come true. Our first location, Wellington, really grew on us as it was big enough to explore, but small enough to not feel lost in. Although it is known as Windy Wellington, I actually enjoyed the weather. The small quaint shops and little streets really promoted us to walk around and explore. And we were lucky enough to celebrate Abhishek Bachchan's birthday during the Rugby Sevens victory party that happened all night on the streets. That was quite a night! In Auckland we visited the Casino and got to go to some really nice beaches. New Zealand is such a nice country; it's hard to keep focused on work".
He further adds, "My wife, Minal, is a bigger thrill seeker than me. We have tried skydiving in Hawaii, waterskiing in Jamaica, and Scuba diving in Tahiti. But New Zealand definitely has a lot to offer us, so we will have to come back for more," exclaimed Omi, who is looking forward to many future visits to New Zealand.
