With every sneak peek into the process of how Vidhu Vinod Chopra created his upcoming, Shikara, it gets us even more excited! The makers released a video today where they had only two hours to shoot for only two hours at significant risk in Srinagar for their film due to security reasons and well, the struggle truly was the most stressful.
Giving us a glimpse into all that went into the making of Shikara, the makers took to their social media and posted, “This film crew was given only 2 hours to shoot a scene in a volatile district of Kashmir. How did they pull it off?"

In the video, we can see the cast and crew of Shikara shooting in Amira Kadal district of Kashmir where there is the presence of armed police and the team of the film wrapped in the tensed aura. Vidhu made sure he got the scene right on the first day of the shoot and the entire team can be seen much dedicated to getting the scene wrapped in the granted time.
Shikara is one of the most anticipated films of this year. The film is inspired by Vidhu's own life and is a tribute by the director to his mother. It brings back the untold story of Kashmiri pandits from the valley of 1990 and has 40,000 real migrants of Jagti and other camps who actually shot for the film. The film also has actual footage from the exodus which brings it even closer to reality.
Shikara is all set to release on February 7, 2020. Presented by Fox Star Studios, it is backed by Vinod Chopra Productions and co-produced by Fox Star Studios.
