Dehradun, June 18 

Following in the footsteps of the Hindi film directors, crew and caste of a Telugu film started shooting a movie in Dehradun on Monday. 

The shooting, under the banner of SVC Productions 30, commenced at a local school here. The untitled film has southern superstar Mohan Babu and Pooja Hegde in the lead roles. 

Chief Minister TS Rawat gave the ‘mahurat’ shot for the Telugu film. Notably, within a span of six months, shooting of around seven films have taken place in Uttarakhand. 

The shooting of the film will continue for a period of three days at the Summer Valley School and later the film unit will move to the Forest Research Institute (FRI) where the shooting will commence from June 22. Mahesh Babu is reported to be among the highest paid actors in the South Indian film industry.

Dr Rathi Shankar Tripathi, line producer of the film, said a college set would be created for filming the scenes. He said Pooja would play the role of a college student. 

He said the Rs 125-crore film was the first big budget film to be shot in Uttarakhand.

While Ajay Devgun starrer ‘Shivaay’, which was also shot in Uttarakhand, is said to have been made at a cost of Rs 80 crore. 

The Uttarakhand Government is hopeful that film producers from all over the country and abroad will boost the tourism industry in the state.

    Bound by boundaries of language

    Although India, as a country, produces a huge, diverse body of what is called regional literature in its 23-odd constitutionally recognised languages, Indian writers who write in Hindi or in regional languages have to struggle to be heard and read in the charmed circles of Indian readership.

  • From manuscripts to scripts

    Amit Dutta’s Aadmi ki Aurat Aur Anya Kahaniyan (2009), which is fast becoming a landmark in Indian cinema, has a section called Adam ki Aurat based on Vinod Kumar Shukla’s Hindi short story by the same name.

  • A far cry from a glorious past

    Punjabi is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by about 130 million people and ranks as the 10th most widely spoken language of the world.
