Mumbai, July 15 (IANS) The makers of “Mubarakan” had shot the film in the Gurudwara of Kent in Britain, which is considered to be the largest Gurudwara in Europe. It didn’t take them long to form an emotional bond with the people there.
Director Anees Bazmee and the crew members, around 150 people, went for ‘langar’ every day.
“We were so happy that we got permission to shoot in this specific Gurudwara because it is such a beautiful place. We have shot a very important scene in the film at this place and our crew members developed an emotional bond with the Gurudwara people,” Bazmee said in a statement.
The director added: “In fact, when we wrapped our London schedule, some members from my team again went to Gurudwara to meet them and give them a goodbye hug. Without their support, it wouldn’t have been possible to shoot ‘Mubarakan’ there.”
“Mubarakan”, produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions and Ashwin Varde and Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios, is slated to have its worldwide release on July 28.
SRK relishes Rajasthani thali in Jaipur
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, currently promoting his forthcoming venture “Jab Harry Met Sejal”, was spotted relishing Rajasthani dishes in Jaipur.
Shah Rukh was hosted by a Rajasthani restaurant and was treated to a special Rajasthani thali. It was for the first time that Shah Rukh was relishing authentic Rajasthani cuisine and the actor made the most of his appetite.
The 52-year-old was seen gorging on dal baati and churma in a gold thali.
“I had just heard of dal baati. It’s fantastic and really nice. I wonder how people finish this food. It’s really filling and very tasty. For me, it’s a first-time experience. Now, I will come here once in three months at least,” Shah Rukh said in a statement.
The restaurant created a royal ambience to mark Shah Rukh’s visit and welcomed him traditionally with a worship plate and tika in addition to presenting him with a pagdi, Rajputana sword and garland.
Rajasthani singers were also placed to recreate some of the “Don” star’s most iconic songs with a Rajasthani twist.
Shah Rukh was on a two-day visit to Jaipur, but had his schedule altered to accept an Honorary Membership accorded to him by the Jodhpur Tourist Guide Association on Friday.
He then took to the job of a guide and toured Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur.
Presented by Red Chillies Entertainment, “Jab Harry met Sejal”, directed by Imtiaz Ali, is set to release on August 4.
