Hair, lights, action! on the Nottingham set of new Bollywood film
Share This Article:
Shahid Kapoor is doing his hair. With a concentrated look, the Bollywood actor changes tiny parts of his messy coiffure. The man holding up his mirror looks at him with the intensity of a painter, a makeup brush put behind his ear. The cameraman holds his camera on his shoulder, light men wait in the shadows. Around them, dozens of extras hold their breaths. ‘Silence!’ roars the production leader.’ Done? Ok, stand still, clapper, background action, and….action!’ The Nottingham students who work as an extra on the new Bollywood movie shooting in town get a very close look of the action. The movie, working title Teri Meri Kahani (‘Our Story’), has already finished work in London and is now being filmed in different locations on Nottingham University campus, including Hallward Library and the Trent building. Other places around the city are also used, with today’s location being a hotel in Long Eaton.
