Fiji’s “ro­man­tic lo­ca­tions” has cap­ti­vated the imag­i­na­tion of one su­per­vis­ing pro­ducer from In­dia. Sumeet Ag­gar­wal and his en­tire crew are here to shoot a ro­man­tic Pun­jabi movie ‘Jaani’ in the Western Di­vi­sion. The movie cast in­cludes the for­mer Miss In­dia Navneet Kaur Dhillon, and fa­mous Pun­jabi ac­tor, Gippy Gre­wal. Mr Ag­gar­wal said the team wanted to shoot in Fiji be­cause of the ro­man­tic lo­ca­tions. “Fiji has been one of the most ro­man­tic lo­ca­tions we could find and we had seen the whole place for 15 days be­fore start­ing to shoot for this film,” he said. “The movie is all about a jour­ney there­fore we want to cap­ture the moun­tains and the ocean and we are shoot­ing in be­tween Raki­raki and Co­ral Coast.” The film is about a girl from In­dia who falls in love with a taxi driver in Fiji. “The girl comes from a fam­ily which has a very wealthy back­ground and she comes to Fiji to get mar­ried to her fi­ancé, but her flight gets di­verted to a dif­fer­ent air­port and she meets this taxi driver and asks him to drop her to Suva from Nadi,” Mr Ag­gar­wal said. “The jour­ney be­tween these two peo­ple and how they fall in love in the jour­ney it­self is all about the film.” He ac­knowl­edged the Fi­jian Gov­ern­ment for the sup­port and the en­tire movie crew was thank­ful for that. “The Fi­jian Gov­ern­ment is sup­port­ing us in this project and we have cho­sen Fiji for shoot­ing be­cause it is a ro­man­tic movie and Fiji as a coun­try is very ro­man­tic and we thank the Fi­jian Gov­ern­ment for al­low­ing us to shoot here in Fiji,” he said. Mr Ag­gar­wal pre­vi­ously worked in movies like ‘Robot’, ‘Roy’ and has worked in Pun­jabi movies as well like ‘Munde Ka­maal Deh’. The movie will be shot here un­til July 6 and it is ex­pected to hit the cin­e­mas by Oc­to­ber this year.
