Sarbjit’s shoot at Attari border after Aishwarya requested authorities

Feb 26:  Makers of  ‘Sarbjit’ have finally got permission to shoot at the Attari border after former Miss World Aishwarya Rai put in a request to the authorities, trade sources said.
The shoot of the film had been stuck over the past few days due to rejection of request by the concerned authorities to shoot at Attari Border.
Even the efforts by the crew, including its director Omung Kumar ,were not making much headway.  Faced with the prospect of the film overshooting its budget due to the delay, the makers requested Aishwarya to intervene.
Sources said that it was after Aishwarya’s request that the authorities in the Central government granted the permission for shoot at the Attari border.
The crew will shoot for the crucial sequences today after which they will head towards Delhi for a two-day shoot and then to Mumbai.The crew had earlier shot some scenes at the Golden Temple in Amritsar too.
‘Sarbjit’ is a biopic on Sarabjit Singh, an Indian farmer who was convicted of terrorism and spying in Pakistan and was sentenced to death. He later died in a Pakistan jail under mysterious circumstances.
In the film, Randeep plays ‘Sarabjit’, and Aishwarya plays his sister ‘Dalbir Kaur’. The film is scheduled to hit cinema screens on May 19.
