The shooting of 'Yeh Hai India' began here on Monday, said Lom Harsh, who is making his directorial debut with the movie.
"One of my friends who was working with a production company really liked my script and agreed to make the film with me as a director. We then held several meetings planning and strategising for the film. The script took almost six to seven years and finally we went on floors with a schedule in Jaipur on Monday," Harsh told IANS.
An interior designer by profession, holder of a diploma in filmmaking and Masters in Administration, the director explained how the seed of "Yeh Hai India" was born in his mind.
"I have been a permanent resident of Australia for seven years and have travelled to several other international locations. As soon as I stepped out of India, I felt a sense of moral duties and responsibility as an Indian to promote and protect the image of India and Indians. And at this moment of realisation, I started writing the story of 'Yeh Hai India'," he said.
'Yeh Hai India' is being jointly directed by Harsh and G.K. Yogesh, and jointly produced by Harsh and Sandeep Choudhary under the banner of DLB Films Pvt Ltd. The film will be shot across different parts of India including Mumbai and Haridwar.
