Manushi Chhillar’s 15 sleepless nights to finish the shooting of Tehran!

17th Oct, 2022

After debuting from Samrat Prithviraj in Bollywood, lovely actress Manushi Chhillar has wrapped up her forthcoming geo-political drama Tehran. The movie also stars John Abraham. The movie went on floors a few months ago and was shot extensively in Glasgow, Mumbai and Delhi. Fascinatingly, after playing the role of Princess Sanyogita in Samrat Prithviraj opposite Akshay Kumar, Manushi's first look from Tehran created quite a stir, leaving the viewers thrilled and intrigued to see the gorgeous actress in a starkly different avatar.

The third schedule of Tehran started in the last week of September and was shot over 15 days, consisting of night shoots through the bylanes of Delhi. Sharing her astonishing experience of the shoot, Manushi reveals, “I want to learn and grow with every project that I get an opportunity to do. I want to constantly evolve into becoming an actor who is formidable in her craft and dependable to deliver performances that hopefully touch the hearts and minds of audiences. Tehran is one such film.”

She further added, “Shooting for Tehran was an enriching experience. I learned something new every single day! In the run-up to the film’s wrap, I was only shooting nights! So, I might have ended up with 15 sleepless nights but I was satiated as an artiste because I got to understand the craft so differently, primarily because the genre is so exciting. This was my first long night shoot schedule of my career and I enjoyed it every single night.”

The action thriller Tehran, inspired by true events, marks the directorial debut of ad filmmaker Arun Gopalan and is produced by Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films.
