The team of Bollywood film “Sarbjit”, including actors Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Randeep Hooda, has received permission to shoot close to the international border with Pakistan near Attari.
Aishwarya is said to have requested government officials to grant permission for the Omung Kumar directorial, which is a biopic on Sarabjit Singh, an Indian farmer who was convicted of terrorism and spying in Pakistan and was sentenced to death.
In the film, Randeep plays Sarabjit, and Aishwarya plays his sister Dalbir Kaur.

“The makers were stuck when it came to final stage. And then the makers requested Aishwarya to intervene. She then agreed and requested (Home Minister) Rajnath Singh, and other important officials to grant the permission. And the authorities gave a thumbs up for the shoot,” said a source aware of the developments.
The crew will shoot for the sequence on Sunday and will eventually head to Delhi for a two-day shoot and then to Mumbai. The film is slated to hit the screens on May 19.
