Actor Preity Zinta’s film, Ishkq in Paris, includes a scene that was shot on top of the Eiffel Tower, and that too, on a day that recorded the lowest temperature that Europe has seen in the past 65 years.
As a result, Zinta had to brave the cold in designer couture minus any kind of winter wear and could not reschedule it, given that the locations is one of the most expensive places to shoot at.
Director Prem Soni confirms it. “We shot in Paris, which saw the coldest winter in 65 years. Apart from the fact that we withstood the weather and successfully shot there, we also managed to get permission to shoot at the Eiffel Tower and other iconic locations that very few manage to,” he says.
The film is Zinta’s debut production and is releasing on October 5, alongside Sridevi’s comeback movie, English Vinglish. But the actor is unperturbed with the competition. “I’m not here to compete. And to pull down someone to make your way up, is not my style,” Zinta reportedly said in the past.
