Bhopal, which has recently emerged as Bollywood's favourite destination for shooting films, is abuzz with sounds of 'lights, camera, action' as actors Arshad Warsi and Saurabh Shukla shoot in and around Bhopal.

Besides the shooting of 'Lipstick Waale Sapne' starring Page 3 actor Konkana Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak Shah and many more in Chowk Bazaar area of old Bhopal, Prakash Jha Productions has started shooting a comic flick 'Fraud Saiyyan' at various locations in Bhopal.

Munnabhai MBBS actor Arshad Warsi and Saurabh Shukla play the lead characters in the film. The movie is being directed by Saurabh Shrivastava.

The 45-day shooting for this comic drama began in Bhopal on November 3. "80% of the artists in this movie are from Bhopal. A few would also be essaying very important roles in the film," says Zaid, line producer of the film.

At present, shooting for the movie is on at Raisen Fort and the team will be spotted at various other places in Bhopal. "We are yet to design a proper shoot schedule for the days to follow. Once we wind up shooting here, we will decide the other locations," Zaid further said.

Warsi will be seen playing the role of a fraudster who marries 13 women who are able to support his lifestyle and considers this as a business plan. The character that Warsi plays believes that marriage is a profitable and an easy profession.
