Parineeti and Sooraj Barjatya share a light moment while discussing a scene on location.


‘Humbled by the MAJESTIC Mount Everest!! आप लोग भी दर्शन करलो।Jai Ho’, notes Mr Kher.


An adorable memory from the Nepal shoot.

‘Met Lakshmi and Susmita — two bright young girls at the shoot of Uunchai. They were funny, intelligent, charming and superbly interactive. Later Susmita was kind enough to sing a Nepalese song for me. So much to learn from this young generation.’


‘Kher Saab said some jokes only work lying down. Truth is we were really tired. The relief of lying down was so good… he forgot to crack the joke,’ recalls Boman.


Early morning treks are hard, but the view is always worth it.
