Director Maneesh Sharma, who recently turned producer with YRF for 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha', has always explored new territories for his films. His earlier films 'Band Baja Baarat' and 'Shudh Desi Romance' were set in Delhi and Jaipur respectively.
This time, he has decided to set the Ayushmann Khurrana-Bhumi Pednekar film in Haridwar and Rishikesh. Maneesh Sharma has a good understanding of small town sensibilities and has endearing characters in his films. The entire film is shot in Haridwar and it is in fact the first bollywood film to be entirely shot there.
Haridwar gives an authentic feel to the movie and is integral to the story. It imparts its flavour to the film and almost feels like a character!
Dum Laga Ke Haisha is an endearing story of Prem and his oversized and mismatched wife Sandhya who struggles to find love and acceptance. Directed by Sharat Katariya, it is scheduled to release on 27th February, 2015.
