In a press conference in Darjeeling, Director Mahesh Bhatt stated that he has convinced fellow film maker Anurag Basu to reshoot his film Barfee, in Darjeeling. Basu has decided to visit Darjeeling to check the ground realities before making any commitments.

The film crew of Barfee had had a squabble with over enthusiastic crowds trying to catch a glimpse of actor Ranbir Kapoor during a shoot at the Chowrasta on June 16, 2011. Basu went back with the shoot incomplete. Sources state that Basu has completed some scenes in Ooty.

Talking to HT, Basu stated “I will be visiting Darjeeling alone in Darjeeling and check the ground realities (shooting conditions.) Following this will I take the final decision. I have always been enthusiastic to shoot in Darjeeling.” The Administration and the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) has assured Basu of a perfect shooting environment.
