View 36 China Town Movie StillsFor those who do not know, the unit of the Imtiaz Ali directed Shahid-Kareena film, titled TRAIN, has been in the picturesque hill station of Kullu-Manali from April end. The major stars, including the lead pair are putting up at the famous Span Resorts.

Now we bring you an almost 'live' scoop about TRAIN, straight from the shooting venue. As you are reading this, Imtiaz is picturising a song sequence on Shahid and Kareena (dressed up in traditional Kullu dresses), in the Naggar Panchayat, Dharohan village to be exact.

As per the film's local coordinator Anil Kastha, the Historic Naggar fort (overlooking the Beas river), now being run by HPTDC (Himachal Pradesh Tourism Corporation) as a resort, has been fully booked for the Naggar shooting schedule.

A thing about the song being picturised. It is supposed to be at the ancient 'Shaari' fair of Naggar (which will actually commence from May 18) and an exact ambience of the fair has been created. The song being canned will come at a very important juncture in the film.

The TRAIN will halt in Kullu-Manali till the end of this month and then leave for the Himachal Pradesh capital, Shimla.
