Gurinder takes a royal break in Jodhpur
British filmmaker of Indian origin Gurinder Chadha (right), who is shooting a period drama in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, is loving the royal feel of the city, and says she could get used to life as a “maharani”.
“Well earned day off by the pool. I could get used to life as a maharani,” the Bend It Like Beckham director wrote on Twitter with an image in which she’s seen posing against the backdrop of a heritage hotel and its swimming pool.
It seemed to be a perfect Sunday for her, after weeks of shooting in the city, and Chadha seems content with the way her film is shaping up.
She took to the microblogging site to express her contentment about her project.
“...happy with all on @ ViceroysHouse so far! Feels like my best work to date,” she had tweeted in mid-September.
The film stars Hugh Bonneville as Lord Mountbatten, Gillian Anderson as Lady Mountbatten, Tanveer Ghaani as Jawaharlal Nehru, Neeraj Kabi as Mahatma Gandhi and Denzil Smith as Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
