Neil and Richa shoot for Ishqeria in a Naxal affected area!

Neil Nitin Mukesh and Richa Chadda are said to be having a gala time at the shooting of Ishqeria, but the duo while shooting for a romantic track for the movie, had to be extra careful. The song was shot in Allahabad, the location of the shoot is known to be heavily affected by Naxalites.

A source says, “The place was scenic with waterfalls in a remote area, but we had put up tough security and were not allowed to shoot post six in the evening. We still managed to complete the shoot of the song with no harm caused to any of the cast and the crew members.”

Talking about the same, Neil says, “It is only when we reached there that we learnt that it was a Naxal prone zone. But that’s the life of an actor, often requiring him/her to be in tough situations. Believe me, the place was beautiful… a steep stone valley with waterfalls. We often had to trek the cliff without any gear or support.”

On his chemistry with Richa, he says, “This is our first film together and what I really like about her is the kind of cinema she has done —very out-of-the-box. I’ve always wanted to work with her for that.”
