Mumbai (UNI): Hollywood star Angelina Jolie today continued shooting for the film A Mighty Heart at a McDonalds restaurant in Colaba locality of south Mumbai. Jolie, along with her co-star Dan Futterman had been filming at various locations in Mumbai, including in a second class coach of a local train, for the past two days. Jolie and the film crew were at the restaurant for more than an hour. Her security guards kept curious onlookers at bay and the shooting for the film, based on the life of slain Wall Street Journal correspondent Daniel Pearl, progressed without a hitch.
Later in the afternoon, she went to Famous Cine Laboratory, a recording studio, in Tardeo. The shooting schedule has been kept a closely guarded secret. Photographers, however, managed to click her pictures after lying in wait for hours outside a five star hotel opposite the Gateway of India where she staying with partner and producer of the film Brad Pitt and her three children.
Jolie continued her shooting on the roads of Mumbai for the second day yesterday. Shots filmed on the actress were in a car. A vehicle with camera crew moving ahead of her car shot sequences of Jolie, attired in a grey dress. Her security guards followed in separate cars. A pilot vehicle led the group. About seven to eight photographers from different media publications, who followed them from the five hotels opposite Gateway of India to Cuffe Parade and back, a distance of three to four km, were asked by the security not to come in the frame.
The photographers, on their motorbikes, were allowed to take pictures of the filming. Even as the shooting in the moving cars was taking place, people around were oblivious to what was happening. The traffic was not disrupted and no hurdles were placed in the movement of public or private transport in the area. Jolie plays the character of Pearl's wife Marianne on whose book the film is based. After filming of the sequences from another vehicle, the crew joined Jolie in her car and took some close-up shots. The convoy returned from Cuffe Parade to Gateway of India. Jolie was in a different car on her return journey. She went back to her hotel opposite the Gateway of India to get ready for another round of shooting at a restaurant near the Gateway later in the day.
