It is now confirmed that director Zoya Akhtar will start shooting for Dil Dhadakne Do next week. The cast and crew will fly down to Barcelona on May 13 and the shooting will start on May 18.
Although the actors had earlier reserved dates for the film in June, a source confessed that the makers have faced some problems with the cruise liner company, which stated that the required cruise will be available for shoot only in the month of May. The source also added that the team will return back to the Barcelona Cruise Port every fortnight.
Since several major portions of the film will be shot on the cruise, the makers couldn’t help but work things around and reschedule the shooting dates of the entire cast. The film will be shot extensively at various locations in Europe for 80-90 days. The crew will move to Spain and Istanbul among other locations after filming a few shots in Barcelona.
The film, about a dysfunctional family, stars Anil Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Anushka Sharma with Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra playing siblings. When contacted, Akhtar was unavailable for comment.
Dil Dhadakne…is set to release on June 5, 2015.
