The film, which stars Assamese actor Zerifa Wahid and Seema Biswas, went on floors last year under producer Shahnaab Alam’s banner, Easterly Entertainment.
It was during Chopra’s visit to India last December that director Barua and producer Alam sounded her off about the project.
Priyanka Chopra also the brand ambassador of Assam Tourism, the state government has now extended its support for the shoot.
The source said, “Though the primary photography has been wrapped up, a chunk of the patch work is yet to be done. With Priyanka’s access as the brand ambassador of the state, it will be easier for the crew to procure permissions to shoot in locations off-limits otherwise.”
The film is being directed by auteur Jahnu Barua, who is returning behind the camera after four years.–CINEWS
