Produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shailesh R Singh, the story line is based in Bihar where the actor plays a man who has made a business of abducting grooms with Parineeti as his childhood love. The duo started shootimng for their movie in Lucknow in a start to finish schedule, its being shot in the outskirts of Lucknow, recreating the by lanes of Bihar.
Directed by debutant director Prashant Singh, the actors Siddharth Malhotra and Parineeti recently were required to eat Litti Chokha, a Bihari delicacy for the scene while shooting for a special scene in the movie. Parineeti who has shot for three movies in Lucknow before has never tasted Litti Chokha in her entire life.
A source from the sets reveals, “Parineeti has never tasted Litti Chokha and hence was a bit hesitant in the beginning. But once she tasted Litti Chokha she couldn’t stop herself from binging onto it throughout the day of the shoot. Thankfully, the shot was also framed beautifully as the actors were actually enjoying eating the dish and simultaneously shooting for that particular scene.”
The makers are aiming to wrap up the shoot in Lucknow by October – November. And will shot for some portions in Patna.
