Abhay Deol’s next, SNAFU will be majorly shot in the youth city, Pune. The actor has had packed for a long 40 day schedule and left for Pune driving down himself. Abhay Deol is known for his quirks and has ensured that he drives down himself all the way to Pune from Mumbai.
A source close to the star confirms, “ Abhay loves cars and long drives, given a choice he would be drive himself rather than letting his driver do the driving. There has been many instances where he has jumped over to the driver’s seat even in Mumbai. So Abhay certainly could not let go of this opportunity for a long drive and that too in this breezy weather. And why just driving he is somebody who loves nature so that makes it a double the reason for him to drive down. Bombay Pune drive is fun, I doubt if he would even take a stopover at Lonavala or somewhere else”.
SNAFU starts Abhay Deol and Manjot Singh in the lead. The duos were last seen in the much loved Oye Loucky, Lucky Oye. Puja Gupta is paired opposite Abhay. Abhay plays the role of Kabir Taneja which has negative shades. He plays a young highflying corporate consultant in Mumbai mediating mega deals with most men with Big money. Coincidentally this is Abhay’s third film with the screen name of Kabir.
Sethu Sriram will make his directorial debut in Bollywood, having shot topline projects such as Wanted, Shakti, Tere Naam, OMG and Dusshera as DoP. Sriram has also directed a Kannada film titled Godfather.Talking about the Pune schedule, Sriram said, “We have a packed schedule in Pune and we will shoot all over the city- Malls, multiplexes, boutiques, hotels et al. The majority of this film is slated to be shot in Pune. My DoP has arrived from Chennai and the rest of the crew members have also reached. Abhay will be driving down himself as he loves long drives. We will do a small puja and then roll at break neck speed. The team is very excited, after a hectic pre production the day has finally arrived”.
