In what is a first for Indian cinema, on Tuesday Shahid Kapoor flew a Tornado battle aircraft at the Royal Airforce airbase in Leuchars near Edinburgh as part of the shooting for his father’s Mausam.
In the film Shahid plays an airforce officer. It was felt by his father, the director, that shooting at the restricted airbase area on a real Tornado plane would considerably enhance the authenticity of the aerial shots showing the hero flying as an airforce officer.
Veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor’s directorial debut movie Mausam has completed its first shooting schedule in Edinburgh. The movie stars his son, Bollywood hunk, Shahid Kapoor and Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam Kapoor of Saawaria fame, in the lead roles.
For the last two months, the cast and crew of Mausam had been in Edinburgh to shoot for the movie. The unit has now returned to Mumbai and after completing the scheduled shoot here they will reportedly move to Punjab to shoot a few scenes there. As per the sources, the team will go back to Edinburgh again in winter for the remaining shots.
Walking the most trodden path to stardom that is on-screen kissing is not Sonam Kapoor’s cup of tea. She turned her back when asked to smooch Shahid Kapoor as required by the script for a scene in Mausam during the Scotland schedule. It is in buzz that her refusal to lock lips with the Bollywood hunk raised a ruckus on the sets of the movie.
Sonam was taken by surprise when the film’s director and Shahid’s dad Pankaj Kapoor asked her to do a lip-locking scene with her co-star Shahid. She said that she was not informed of such a scene when she had signed the movie and the script had been narrated to her. “Sonam was taken aback when the director told her about it. She flatly refused”, a source from Mausam’s unit revealed.
It has been found that Shahid Kapoor, the popular Bollywood actor is affraid of his father. He is presently shooting with his dad Pankaj Kapur for the movie Mausam in Edinburgh.
It is reported that even before the crew left for UK. Shahid was getting addicted to the songs of the cinema. The actor, in fact, loved one of the songs so much that he kept on playing it at his place, at loud volumes.
Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor, who has been staying away from his estranged mother Neelima for many years, has patched up with her. The reason is Shahid’s dog , Kaizer,sounds very weird! Isn’t it?
It is reported that the actor was not even on talking terms with his mother. Recently, when Shahid had to leave for Scotland to shoot for his father Pankaj Kapoor’s film Mausam, he had asked his mother to look after his pet, Kaizer. Now, the pooch is living with Neelima and she is taking good care of it.
Ever since he unintentionally gave away his hotel and location in Edinburgh on Twitter, Shahid Kapoor seems to the toast of the Scottish press and public. Edinburgh seems to have taken a shine to Shahid. This is the first Indian film unit in Edinburgh since Karan Johar shot a song for Kuch Kuch Hota Hai in the country. And the local population can’t seem to contain its excitement.
According to a member of the Mausam unit, Scotland seems more Bollywood-struck than rural Punjab.
For his starrer Happi directed by Bhavna Talwar, where Pankaj Kapoor plays the Charlie Chaplinesque role of homeless tramp in Mumbai, most of the dialogues and sounds have been captured live. However some vital portions of the brilliant actor’s lines had to be dubbed in a studio.
Since Kapoor had to leave for Scotland to shoot for his first directorial venture it was suggested that he dub the vital lines in Edinburgh at one of the poshest post-production studios in the world.
Shahid who maintains a reverent restrain in front of his father, has lost all his inhibitions in Edinburgh. Because that’s what his father Pankaj Kapoor expects from Shahid in Mausam.
The crew is surprised delighted and confused by Shahid’s constant antics, playful and most uncharacteristic of the actor who likes to stay aloof on location unless with close friends. But on this one Pankaj forbade Shahid from maintaining a distance. Mingle mix and enjoy were the brief that Shahid took dead seriously.
