London, Nov 1 (IANS) Rajshri Productions will shoot their next Hindi film in Coventry. And it’s a love story involving two students, a Japanese and an Indian. The shooting will begin in March 2009 and will mostly be centred around Coventry University.
University officials told Asia News newspaper that it would be an opportunity to showcase their university internationally.
Jill Journeaux, dean of the school of art and design at the university, said: “The producers were very complimentary about our facilities and impressed that a majority of the locations they wanted to film at were situated on or around the campus.
“It is something totally new to us but exciting at the same time. We have also managed to secure some work for our media students. They will be able to work on the film in a variety of roles and gain excellent first-hand experience of the film industry.”
Rajshri Productions has earlier made films like “Maine Pyar Kiya”, “Hum Aapke Hain Koun” and “Vivah”.
