From tackling local shut down to certain legal implications, it seems Manmarziyaan had to overcome its own share of obstacles during their Kashmir schedule. The team of the Anurag Kashyap directorial was in a bid to capture the beautiful locales of the valley for their romantic drama. But the short schedule turned out to be much more dramatic as the team had to tackle some unexpected issues.
Yet another hassle they faced was in the Thajiwas area where Taapsee and Abhishek were shooting. Reports suggest that the team invited the wrath of local tour guides as they protested over the using of vans and other automobiles which are banned in the area. According to the order passed by the J&K court, the Sonamarg Development Authority in 2017 banned any vehicular movement on the Sonamarg-Thajiwas road. The reason was to protect the beauty of the location as the greenery was diminishing owing to the kind of pollution and heavy mass of black carbon that were created by the vehicles.
Speaking about her experience, Taapsee said, “I have only heard from people how beautiful Kashmir is but never got a chance to go there. Even though I detest cold weather I really had a great time on this place which is rightfully called the ‘paradise on Earth’. We only shot there for 3 days there but marked the end of shoot for Manmarziyaan and what better way than to call it a wrap other than the beautiful Sonamarg.”
