Kangana Ranaut starrer Bollywood blockbuster movie Tanue Weds Manu director has decided to shoot his next movie in Pakistan. The romantic comedy movie, ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’ will star Abhey Deol and Diana Penty in leading role. The Fast and Furious 7 famed Bollywood actor Ali Fazal will also play an important role in the movie. Aanand has confirmed the news to Indian website Mumbai Mirror and said that they have already applied for visas.
The Mumbai Mirror has revealed that Abhey Deol will play the lead role in cross-border love story and Aanand, who will be making his production debut with Happy Bhaag Jaeygi, wants to shoot parts of the film in Pakistan.
Confirming the news Aanand says, “Yes, it’s a light-hearted romcom based in Amritsar and Lahore. The two cities are close to each other and we do wish to shoot certain portions in Pakistan. We have applied for permissions.”
Mumbai Mirror reported that Kabir Khan had to shoot in Gulmarg for scenes set in Pakistan in his just-released Bajrangi Bhaijaan and recreate parts of the neighbouring country in Punjab for Phantom, Aanand remains optimistic. “Mine is a fun film and it does not raise any political issues,” he reasons.
Ali Fazal plays the third lead but Aanand would not be drawn into a discussion on characters and plot details. All he says is, “We are looking to kick off at the end of August or the first week of September.”
