Sanjay Leela Bhansali"s upcoming next, Guzaarish starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Bachchan begins shooting on Thursday, July 30th, in Filmcity, Mumbai. But before the first shot of his new biggie is canned, Bhansali has headed off to Rajasthan for seeking blessings at the Ajmer dargah.
“The famous Ajmer dargah seems to be a hot favourite nowadays with Bollywood folks for seeking divine blessings before anything big takes place, and it is indeed turning out to be lucky as well. Earlier, Himesh Reshammiya had gone there in disguise just days before his acting debut film Aap Ka Suroor"s release. Katrina Kaif too headed there few days before her Yash Raj film New York was released and now Bhansali.
“We all know that Bhansali is a very passionate filmmaker and though his last film, the much hyped Saawariya didn"t exactly set the box office on fire, he is determined this time to make Guzaarish work big time on all fronts." says a source.
He further adds, “Bhansali also ensures that on the first day of the shoot of his every film, his mother is present on sets, since he considers her his biggest inspiration."
It is learnt that Aishwarya Bachchan won"t be a part of the film when it kicks starts, as she is busy shooting in Kerala for Mani Ratnam"s Raavan. She will be joining the unit after a few weeks. Guzaarish will be shot at Filmcity, Mumbai, for over a month.
