The romantic-drama that marks sensation Dhanush’s Bollywood debut will feature several scenes shot at the palace at Haryana.
Says director Anand Rai, “I was mesmerized by the palace; it had pictures of the royalty, including one of Maharani Gayatri Devi,”
Says producer Krishika Lulla, “We were very keen to shoot a couple of scenes at the Pataudi Palace. It has a rich history, being an imposing structure with splendid architecture, which worked well for a few particular scenes in the film” Adding that “We acquired all the requisite permissions. We share a rapport with Saif (Ali Khan) and family, so they gave it to us. They charged us a minimum amount”.
