Ac­tor-dancer Shan­tanu Ma­hesh­wari and his Desi Hop­pers crew, who were in Los An­ge­les for a shoot, were thrilled by the city that houses pop­u­lar Hol­ly­wood stu­dios. Their crew were shoot­ing at a land­mark stu­dio — Walt Dis­ney.

Shan­tanu said, “We got to prac­tice for the show at the Cen­ter Stage Stu­dio in LA . It’s the same stu­dio where Michael Jack­son would re­hearse for his per­for­mances.”

He felt that the city is one of the liveli­est places in Cal­i­for­nia, USA, with help­ful lo­cals and also men­tioned that there is a pos­i­tive vibe to it. “There was al­ways so much hap­pen­ing in and around Bur­bank, which is what I en­joyed the most,” he said.

He fur­ther added, “Dur­ing one of our off days, we vis­ited Hol­ly­wood Boule­vard, a com­plete Hol­ly­wood-themed street. There are so many things to see, gift shops with su­per­hero fig­urines, a Ri­p­ley’s Be­lieve It or Not! minia­ture mu­seum and amaz­ing food joints in­clud­ing some good In­dian ones, which served us some yummy Pun­jabi food. I re­mem­ber they even cracked some Hindi di­a­logues with us, and in re­turn we taught them some more of them.”

Dur­ing one of the days, they ex­plored a Mex­i­can restau­rant called Mu­cho Mas and Shan­tanu just can­not for­get the food he tasted there.

“The Chicken Ta­cos and Mex­i­can Rice with Re­fried Beans were quite good. Apart from that, we also tried one of the small pizza joints called Pin­ball Pizza, which had the most amaz­ing oven fresh piz­zas. We even took a drive down Bev­erly Hills on one of the days,” said Shan­tanu.

He added that the area was so clean and the homes there were beau­ti­ful and unique in their own way. “The streets there were quite empty, not too many peo­ple walk­ing around like we have here. Over­all, our ex­pe­ri­ence in LA whilst shoot­ing was amaz­ing,” con­cluded the dancer.
