Mesmerized by natural beauty of Kashmir, Bollywood actor Abhishek Bacchan who is currently shooting his upcoming flicker ‘Manmarziyaen’ here on Tuesday urged film industry to frequent valley for shooting their movies.
Reiterating ‘Kashmir as heaven on Earth’, junior Bachchan who was talking to media in Srinagar said he is happy to be in Kashmir.
“…Very nostalgic. I spent my childhood in Kashmir, especially on this property to come back after so many years. I have done a fair bit of shooting up in Leh. This is the first time I have done a shooting around Srinagar and Sonamarg. It is nostalgic for me because I have come here when my father used to shoot his films here. It is truly heaven on earth and very happy to be back. It still is beautiful as it used to be,” he said.
Abhishek also urged his Bollywood counterparts to plan their shoots in Kashmir.
“I think the kind of production help you get over here. The facilities are fantastic. We have shot so many films; Indian film industry has shot so many films in Kashmir. I am very sure that they will start coming back. In the past couple of years, we have seen a fair amount of films coming from all over India to shoot in Kashmir and I think that trend will grow,” he said.
The film is directed by well known Bollywood actor Anurag Kashyap.
