Recently, amidst tight security, Kangana Ranaut shot for her upcoming film Queen at Terminal 1 of Delhi airport. However, getting permission for the shoot wasn’t very easy.
If a source is to be believed, the airport officials were reluctant in giving permission due to security reasons. However, when the officials got to know that two members from the filmy team were National Awardees, the airport officials changed their minds.
Kangana won the National Award for Fashion and director Vikas Bahl won the award for Chillar Party. Says a source, “When the officials were informed that two National Award winners were part of the film, it became easier to gain permission.”
Thereafter, the crew shot for a day at the airport.
Queen is being directed by Vikas Bahl. He said, “The authorities follow their own procedures and credibility definitely matters. I am sure the award certificates helped.”
He also said that the officials were pretty cooperative and that the shooting went off well the first day. “They had given us one of the sections of Terminal 1 for a whole day,” he says.
Queen is a story on a Delhi based girl, who goes on a honeymoon all alone. Most parts of the film has been shot on real locations in Delhi. The film has also been shot across Europe, mainly in Paris and Amsterdam.
