After Amitabh Bachchan has become the brand ambassador of Gujarat tourism, Bollywood seems to have taken a
fancy for the state.
Noted film maker Tigmanshu Dhulia is shooting his next film titled "Sahib, biwi aur gangster" in the erstwhile princely
state of Devgarh Baria in Gujarat.
Produced by Brandsmith & Tigmanshu Dhulia Films, the film will go on the floor in September and will be extensively
shot in the area, which offers interesting virgin locations, including the old Raj Mehel.
When contacted, Rahul Mittra, CEO Brandsmith & the producer of the film, confirmed the news.
"Yes, the film is being shot at the Mehel & other locations at Baria. We are being extending all support by Rajkumari
Urvashi Devi and the Gujarat Government," said Mittra, who is currently camping in Baria, 150 Km away from Baroda
along with Dhulia and the film technical recee team.
Former Gujarat cabinet minister Urvashi Devi seemed upbeat, "We are certain this film will boost tourism in Baria
and are happy having the team over."
