The late auteur's wish to shoot his film at Raj Mandir theatre in Jaipur was recently granted
Yash Chopra passed away last year but his legacy still continues. To honour the late filmmaker's long cherished dream of shooting at the famous Raj Mandir theatre in Jaipur, the owners of the art-deco cinema hall
threw open its doors for Aditya Chopra's next.
The film starring Parineeti Chopra, Sushant Singh Rajput and Vaani Kapoor is set in the Pink City. The theatre apparently has strict rules of not letting anyone shoot on their premises. But apparently for Shudh Desi
Romance, the rule was bent for the first time.
A source says, `The theatre is also very popular among couples. Earlier when the team went to Jaipur and expressed their wish to shoot some romantic scenes there, they were disappointed to know that the owner of
the hall was not keen to let anyone shoot there. But later on learning the late Chopra's unfulfilled wish, the film's team received a green signal.`
A popular movie hall in Jaipur, Raj Mandir has seen several Hindi film premieres. It is also refereed to as the Pride of Asia. It opened on June 1, 1976 with the film Charas and was designed by architect WM Namjoshi.
