Freezing cold notwithstanding, Rajasthan is currently the hot spot for two big film units from Mumbai - Dilli 6 and Victory.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's long-awaited Dilli 6 finally begins shooting in Jaipur.
While Mehra is recreating vignettes from New Delhi in Jaipur with his lead pair Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan, debutant director Ajit Pal is busy shooting dramatic sequences in Jaisalmer for his film Victory.
Victory revolves around cricket and the game part of the film, which has Harman Baweja in the main lead, has been canned in Mumbai.
"We're shooting heavy duty dramatic scenes in the freezing cold and, that too, during the night when the temperature is below zero," Anupam Kher, who plays Harman's father in the movie, told IANS.
Earlier, he was shooting in equally harsh weather in Kashmir for Santosh Sivan.
Anupam is all praise for Harman.
"He reminds me of Hrithik Roshan, not just in looks but also in attitude and approach to his work. Like Hrithik, Harman has assisted his father on several productions. When he faces the camera, he knows exactly what he is doing."
Harman would be the first of the major debutants in 2008, and that too from a film family, followed by Mithun Chakraborty's son Mimoh whose dancing skills are being compared with his father, and Subhash Ghai's new discovery Anurag Sinha who's being described as a mixture of Amitabh Bachchan and Naseeruddin Shah by people from the unit of his debut film Black & White.
