Darjeeling's Ghum railway station that appeared in Anurag Basu's film will also feature in Divya Kumar's next

For tourists heading to Darjeeling, the Ghum station is a must-visit destination. And after working on Anurag Basu’s Barfi!, scriptwriter Sanjeev Dutta feels that the world famous train station is his lucky mascot. And that is the reason why he convinced director Divya Kumar to shoot her upcoming film at the Ghum station.

A source says, “Dutta explained to Divya why he loved the spot so much. Divya likes to explore different places so she immediately agreed to go and do a location recce there. She ended up liking the location and is now going to shoot a sequence there.”
