The principal photography of CITYLIGHTS has taken place last week in Rajasthan and this will be followed by a week-long schedule mid-Dec onwards. Based on the life of a poor farmer who comes to the city of Mumbai in search of a better life, the film also marks the coming together of director Hansal Mehta and actor Rajkumar Yadav on the back of the success of critically acclaimed SHAHID. Rajkumar Yadav will be paired opposite actress Patraleka.

Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, says, ''Fox International Productions acquired the remake rights of METRO MANILA and we at Fox Star Studios decided to partner with Vishesh Films for this very special film because no one else can portray love stories in a manner they do. CITYLIGHTS is a love story set against the backdrop of a thriller and we can assure the audiences that this is going to be an altogether new cinematic experience for them. The fact that METRO MANILA is winning international nods is a testament to the fact that its story has found a connect with the worldwide audience and we are excited to bring this story to the Indian audiences set in Rajasthan and Mumbai.''

In the words of Mahesh Bhatt, ''CITYLIGHTS is a moving love story that begins in a village and peaks in a city.''

CITYLIGHTS releases worldwide on May 1st, 2014.
