Veteran action director Sham Kaushal’s son Vicky Kaushal, who made his debut with the critically acclaimed Masaan, was discovered by debutant director Mozez Singh for his upcoming musical drama, Zubaan.
Shooting Zubaan has been a memorable experience for Vicky not just because it’s his debut film but also for the fact that few portions of the movie has been shot at his ancestral place in Hoshiarpur, Punjab.
Apparently, director Mozez wanted to shoot the movie at some place in North India and was figuring out the location. That’s when Vicky suggested him to shoot at his ancestral place in Hoshiarpur. After doing a recce, Mozez agreed to shoot the movie at Vicky’s place and the crew also stayed at his place for the entire Hoshiarpur schedule.
Mozez Singh says, “Since the movie protagonist is based in Punjab, I was figuring out locations in North India. In fact, the production had even shortlisted couple of places, and that’s when Vicky casually mentioned to me about his ancestral home in Hoshiarpur. When I heard that , i told him that we were actually looking forward to shoot in a place like that and then we shot in Pathankot, Qila Raipur ( Dangal was shot here too) and Gurdaspur. For Vicky It was fun shooting the movie in these places as it brought back childhood memories for him.”
Produced by Wave Cinema, Guneet Monga and Shaan Vyas of Sikhya Entertainment & Metamozez Entertainment, Zubaan featuring Vicky Kaushal and Sarah Jane Dias is scheduled to release 4th March 2016.
