A source says, “Divya spotted his house picture online while doing some research. After short listing and finding the address she reached Shimla to meet the owners, not knowing that the house belonged to Shyam Negi. Co-incidentally the day she arrived at his place she saw media vans outside his house, being the Election Day in Himachal. Little did she know that he was Mr Negi- Independent India's first voter.”
The source continues, “Mr Negi was very warm and welcoming and agreed to give his house to Divya to shoot for her film.”
“It might be possible that Mr Negi does a miniscule role in the film” adds the source.
Divya says, “I fell in love with the house the moment I saw the pictures. Thanks to Mr Negi, luckily, I even managed to get the house for shooting my film. It will be a proud moment to have a house shot in the film which belonged to Independent India's first voter.”
The movie produced by Bhushan Kumar goes on floors on December 22 and will be shot majorly in the North of India and Canada.
