Many actors and filmmakers in Mumbai are contemplating a move away from Mumbai. While Sudhir Mishra and Tigmanshu Dhulia are in the process of setting up base in Delhi and UP, respectively, Mumbai boy Purab Kohli has shifted to Goa .
Purab who gives a stunning performance in Girish Malik's Jal says it has become "impossible" to live in Mumbai because of the traffic and the pollution.
"A large number of films are being shot outside Mumbai. My latest film Jal was shot in Kutch in one 40-day schedule. I don't think one needs to be stationed in Mumbai to be an actor," says Purab.
Sudhir Mishra seconds that opinion. "I don't think Mumbai is the hub of filmmaking any longer. Most of my films are shot in Delhi. And in any case I live in Madh Island and ferry down to Mumbai every day during office hours."
