MUMBAI: Bollywood films have recreated real life locations for shoots, for their actor’s convenience. Dongri, popularly known as ‘the lion’s den’ (pun intended) tops the list of locations recreated.
Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, visited the real Dongri chawl in Mumbai to launch their new song and shared their experience of the same.
The song is a recreation of the Rishi Kapoor classic ‘Tayyab Ali Pyar Ka Dushman’ from the classic ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’.
A complete qawwali ambience was created for the song launch, which was graced by the actors. Both Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha were dressed in the attire from the song. While Sonakshi was dressed in an orange churidar and red dupatta, Imran Khan stole hearts dressed in a yellow kurta, black jeans, green qawwal jacket and black topi.
Sonakshi Sinha was visiting the place for the first time and was astonished to be in real Dongri. “This is the first time I am coming to Dongri but our creative team had made such awesome sets for the film that it was impossible to tell if it was fake or real”, said a surprised Sonakshi.
‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara’ produced by Balaji Motion Pictures releases on 15 August.
