Actor Deepak Dobriyal loves to shoot for his films in Delhi. The actor, who hails from Uttarakhand,has shot in the Capital for many films such as Delhi 6 (2008), Tanu Weds Manu (2010), and the recently released Hindi Medium. His next film, Kuldip Patwal: I Didn’t Do It! which also stars actors Raima Sen, Parvin Dabas and Gulshan Devaiyah, has also been shot in Delhi.

“I always feel close to the common man when I am shooting in Delhi. There is some thing really personal and there’s a kind of earthiness whenever I am shooting in the Capital. I always love to shoot here,” says Deepak, who stars in Hindi Medium alongside Irrfan Khan.

The Omkara (2006) actor recalls a sequence when he shot on Delhi roads late into the night. “This was an interesting scene where my character has to go late night in search of some little thing [that] his pregnant wife desires, when all shops are closed. So we shot the scene at around 2am. We wanted a real location to resemble his local access area. As Delhi is always full of people, the challenge was to shoot with no soul in sight,” shares Deepak.

The scene didn’t take more than 30 minutes to finish, he adds, “The beauty of the scene would have been lost if there were people. So, we waited until there was absolutely no one awake strolling the streets at 2 am. The scene was filmed in Ghitorni near Chhattarpur in Delhi. The entire scene took less than half an hour. It was seamless and effortless. I am very pleased with how it has come out.”
