I had to walk a kilometer to get to a washroom: Nusrat
In Zulfiqar, director Srijit Mukherji promises to take you into a Kolkata you've never seen before. Dilapidated buildings, slums, the dockyards -the film shows you parts of the city that you may have never seen before, at least in Bengali films.
"There are some fantastic spots in the city people don't know about. We shot extensively near the port. Then there is this place near Park Circus, which has a Roman amphitheatre kind of feel. We shot some of the most important scenes in these two places. There is a high-voltage action sequence, that we shot on the second Hooghly bridge. It's a bike racing scene, and some of the stunts even scared me," said the director.
