Mumbai,- Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra shot a key sequence for his upcoming film “Mere Pyare Prime Minister” inside a Delhi-bound train.
“There is a sequence in the film where the kids embark on a journey to meet the Prime Minister. We have shot this particular scene in a train enroute to Delhi,” the film’s spokesperson said in a statement.
“Mere Pyare Prime Minister” revolves around the true friendship and life journey of four children who live in the slums of Mumbai.
Mehra had been shooting in real locations in Mumbai — from the slums of Ghatkopar to the slums of Powai. Then, they took a train for a sequence to effectively capture the reality of the train journey.
The cast and crew embarked on a train journey to Delhi, and reached the capital on Thursday.
Mehra had last explored the theme of friendship in a different way with “Rang De Basanti”. With his new film, of course, the setting and idea is very different from his past movie.
“The subject has been simmering on a slow fire for three years. I’m a Delhi boy and all my films– Rang De Basanti, Delhi 6, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Mirzya—were all set in the North. But I’ve been living in Mumbai since 1988 and seen it change into a world city.”
