April 13, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): D.J’s next show on Sony ‘Toh Baat Hamari Pakki Hai’ is busy shooting its initial shoots in Mussoorie, as reported earlier by TellyCafe.com. The recently team had to go through a tough time shooting one sequence on the Mall Road. As with all the hill stations up North, the Mall Road is the most chaotic area in these else wise serene towns.
An onlooker says, “As the director wanted all the lavish locations for the show, the whole unit took their own time for shoots and usually got through them without any unwanted hustles and bustles. Long hours didn’t matter till the unit arrived at the ‘notorious’ Mall Road. A small sequence which could’ve been wrapped up quickly took two whole days. The crowd was unmanageable and kept interrupting the shoot.”
“Finally, the director found a way out of this predicament, and shot from one of the nearby buildings, Taking an aerial view and wide angle shots to wrap up the sequence. The whole team will be returning back today and will start work on the remaining shoots after 16th of this month as the show will be expected to hit air sometime in mid-May.”
