Julia RobertsThe hot Indian weather seems to have taken a toll on Hollywood actress Julia Roberts who is now planning to hit Cherrapunji to shoot the remaining part of her upcoming film Eat, Pray, Love.

The actress has been shooting the spiritual part of the movie in a Ashram Hari Mandir here, about 60kms from the national capital.

And the next stop in her shooting schedule is Cherrapunji, which experiences year long monsoon.

"The director wants to shoot the rains in Cherrapunji, so the crew will be heading there after the shooting sums up in Pataudi," a unit source told PTI.

The 41-year-old actress has till now shot mainly in the Ashram and the Pataudi Palace.

Roberts recently shot a scene where she is shown entering the Ashram in a taxi and a market place atmosphere was created outside the Ashram.

The Oscar-award winning actress also made a visit to Mirzapur, 5 kms from here to shoot a scene which attracted hoards of villagers to the site.

"She went day before yesterday to shoot at Mirzapur and people from all the surrounding villages poured in huge numbers to see the shooting. They are now planning to go there again to shoot in a 'Bajre ka Khet' and they will also be shooting at the Patudi Railway station and the Ram Mandir," says Manoj, a resident of Pataudi village.
