Chandigarh 7 May (Pooja Goyal):
Punjabi cinema is going through its golden period where it is touching new heights every day. There was a time when the budgets were small for Punjabi movies and the shoot was done only in nearby regions and the concepts were common. But these days the projects are going really big. Most of the films are shooting in foreign lands. Adding in this league, the upcoming Punjabi movie ‘Aate Di Chidi’ has also completed one schedule of the film’s shoot.
This movie is going to hit the theatres on 19th October 2018. The shoot is happening at full pace. Whole unit shot the first part of the film in India, particularly in Punjab. Next part will be shot in abroad. Pollywood’s queen, Neeru Bajwa will be seen playing the lead role opposite Bamb Jatt, Amrit Mann. Apart from them the stellar star cast includes Gurpreet Ghuggi, B.N. Sharma, Karmjit Anmol, Sardar Sohi, Nirmal Rishi, Gurpreet Bhangu, Anmol Verma, Nisha Bano and Harby Sangha in pivotal roles. Aate di Chidi is directed by Rabb Da Radio and Sardar Mohammad-fame Harry Bhatti. This project is produced by Teg Productions and Charanjit Singh Walia.
Talking about this first leg of experience, the leading lady of the film, Neeru Bajwa said, “You’re not clear of everything right at the beginning of the film but as the shoot unfolds you start to feel the connection with the story, the character and it becomes an important part of your life. The first schedule was an amazing experience and we are looking forward to the next schedule. The environment of the set is always so friendly and home-like. Everybody was so professional and Harry Bhatti was sure about what he wants from each of his characters. I just hope that the same ambience, the friendly vibe will continue to the next schedule also.”
At this moment, Amrit Mann quoted, “Being on set is an amazing feeling but working as a hero is even greater, there are no words to explain it. I am so blessed that with just my second film I have got the chance to work with the hit machine of Pollywood, Neeru Bajwa and the man with the most conscious vision, Harry Bhatti. Working with both of them is like you have completed an acting course. Since only one segment is completed I will say I have cleared the first semester. I am too thrilled for the Canada shoot and I am sure this will be even more amazing.
The captain of the ship, Harry Bhatti said, “This is just my third film, but within one year I feel people have started expecting a lot from me. So before the shoot of this film I was nervous. Now as the first part of the shooting is over, I am satisfied that my vision is in safe hands and I am happy that I have made a right choice for the characters. Each one of them has totally molded themselves in their roles. Working with Neeru Bajwa and Amrit Mann is an awesome experience. All the preparations are done for Canada. I just wish that with the blessings of Waheguru, this part will also be a success.”
