The winter is setting in and there is a nip in the air. Kashmir is clad with snow and this deep winter is called Chulay Kulan in Kashmiri language.Inspite of the extreme weather conditions there, Aditya Roy Kapur is in a hectic shooting schedule in Kashmir for his next, Fitoor.
Depending on the when the light breaks the team starts shooting and they shoot right until evening when the light starts fading. It is crucial for them to finish shooting what they have marked because fresh snow sets in and the continuity of the film gets hampered. It is a difficult shoot and in order to complete it even their in between breaks and lunch time are a bare minimum.
They started shooting in mid November. Infact Aditya went 4 days prior to get a feel of the place and get into the mould of his character. He even brought in his birthday on the sets. The current shooting schedule will go on till the first week of December and then the team will return for shooting the next schedule in January, when the weather conditions will be even harsher as it will be acute winter.
