‘Manare Tu hi Tu’ Stars Get Temperatures Soaring In Madhya Pradesh
MCL gives you an exclusive insight into the shooting of one of the songs, right from the sets in Madhya Pradesh. And, if the photographs are any indication, the svelte Anubha Sourya, dashing Partha Sarthi Ray and petite Deepika Tripathy have set temperatures soaring in the chilly locales. Seems the actors will certainly sizzle the screen with their chemistry captured beautifully against the backdrop of the visually striking hilly terrains of Panchmarhi and a spectacular dam in Jabalpur district.
Sharing his experiences, actor Partha Sarathi tells MCL, “One morning, we had to shoot at the chilly hills of Panchmarhi where I was clad in a black satin dhoti, a cleavage revealing deep cut vest and was bare footed too. I was positioned at the top of a hill which happens to be the highest point in Madhya Pradesh. While I was stationed there, the heroine stood at the foot of the hill along with some background dancers. It was really cold with a chilly breeze flowing across and I could not even carry a shawl with me as it was a helicam shot. I had to lean against the hill and sing my lines. The icy cold wind made it difficult to sing as my teeth was clattering. It took almost an hour to complete the shot. However, when I later checked the shot, I think it was all worth the pain. Thanks to our choreographer who remained calm and kept us motivated with his sense of humour. We also had a lot of fun during the shoot, cracking jokes on each other.”
While the film has four songs in it, both the songs shot in Madhya Pradesh are dream sequences. While the seductive number ‘Maheru’ features Partha Sarathi with Deepika, the soft and mushy ‘Janam Janam’ has been shot with Partha and Anubha.
‘Manare Tu Hi Tu’ is a love triangle that also involves a fourth player who brings about an unpredictable twist in the story. Actors Partha Sarathi Ray, Anubha Sourya, Suryakant Samal and Deepika Tripathy play the lead along with veterans such as Ajit Das, Pushpa Panda, Salil Mitra, Ashrumochan and Guddu Suman who appear as important characters in the film. Critically acclaimed actor Manoj Mishra who plays the role of Deepika’s brother is the antagonist in the film.
As the shoot is already complete and the film is undergoing the post production phase, the production house Kanika Telemart and director Tapas Sargharia are carefully creating a buzz about the movie without divulging much details. Though the makers are planning for a post Rath Yatra release, they are yet to finalise a date.
