Abhishek, Tanya Hope going places

The cast of Nagashekar’s directorial, Amar, have been filming in a record number of destinations

Published: 20th August 2018

Fifty bikers, including lead actors Abhishek and Tanya Hope are braving rain and shine as they bike through Karnataka. Son of veteran actor Ambareesh, Abhishek is making his debut in Nagashekar’s directorial, Amar and his first film is taking him places, quite literally.

Going by the list of spots mentioned by the director, it seems like the team is setting a new record when it comes to the number of shooting locations. The crew began filming at the end of June, and have been travelling across Karnataka and riding through neighbouring states as well.

They started in Coimbatore, rode to Belgaum and proceeded to Manipal and then Mangaluru, where they halted for six days. Short stops were made at Madikere, Somwarpet, and Gonikoppa, among others. They later headed to Kerala and shot at Sultan Bathery.

“The Ooty schedule was completed on Sunday. Our next stop will be in Bengaluru after which we will head to Mysuru,” says Nagashekar, who will also be visiting Jaipur, where a racing schedule is planned. “We have tried to explore new destinations in our film, which suit the storyline,” adds the director.

Even though some parts of the country are witnessing heavy rainfall, the team managed to bike even with the unpredictable weather conditions. “Biking during monsoons has been challenging, but at the same time, we’ve enjoyed shooting in this weather,” he says.

Fifty per cent of Amar, made under Sandesh Productions, with music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Satya Hegde, has been completed. Post the Mysuru and Jaipur schedule, the shoot will move to a foreign locale, which is yet to be finalised.
