While the much talked debut vehicle of Armaan Jain and Deeksha Seth, ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’, is finally out on big screens, we got to know about interesting facts that happened behind the scenes of the film. We were told that Arif Ali, who makes his directorial debut with this one, reported to have shot some portions of the film in a high-security risk area of Chhattisgarh recently. In fact the newbies Armaan and Deeksha are the youngest actors to have shot in the area of Naxalites and they were said to be quite brave and daredevil to shoot for the film.
There is a turning point in the film where the lead actors land in areas which is surrounded by Naxalites and are stranded there. But Arif who every knows is known for the portrayal of realistic films did not want to fake it and re-create a scene in a set up. Instead the director who hails from Jamshedpur took special permission from Chhattisgarh CM Mr Raman Singh for the shoot and in return the latter assured them with complete security and safety.
When quizzed Arif about it he said, "It was wonderful shooting in Chhattisgarh - the police, aam janta, local villagers all cooperated with us and gave us so much and more."
Eros International & Illuminati Films' ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ released yesterday, on 4th July 2014.
