Shooting for Farah Khan’s third film, Tees Maar Khan, began in Film City on March 1, despite the date falling on Holi and the film’s leading man, Akshay Kumar being absent as a result.
Farah Khan began filming with junior artistes on a much-talked about giant jumbo jet set, constructed by set designer Sabu Cyril. The opinionated director says that the decision to start shooting on Holi was purposeful.
“I wanted to begin shooting on Holi as it’s an auspicious day. Akshay (Kumar) plays Holi and he had asked me to postpone it by a day but I said let’s start shooting with the junior artistes, then”.
Farah says that Akshay will join the cast from March 2nd to commence filming a major comedy sequence for the film.
