Though the mercury saw a dip on Monday, the galaxy of Bollywood stars visiting Himachal Pradesh has warmed up the atmosphere of the hill state.


The cast of the upcoming Bollywood film ‘All is Well’, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Asin Thottumkal and Smriti Irani, has been shooting here since Sunday

On Monday, the crew shot at Bishop Cotton School, which was transformed into an old age home.

Bharatiya Janata Party’s Amethi nominee and television actor Smriti Irani, who is pitted against All-India Congress Committee vice-president Rahul Gandhi, has found time to join the shoot here after elections in Amethi on May 7. 

Rishi Kapoor, who is also a part of the cast, is likely to reach Shimla within a day or two.
The actors are staying at Koti Resort in Mashobra, on the outskirts of Shimla.

The cast and the crew will shoot in Talai village, on the way to tourist destination Craignano, Mashobra, where a market scene has been created for the shoot scheduled for Tuesday.

Almost 70% of the film will be shot in and around Shimla, and the unit is expected to stay here up to 25 days.
