As temperatures plummeted in Manali, the cast of Luv Ranjan's next had to depend on instant noodles to fill their stomachs

The cast and crew of producer Abhishek Pathak’s upcoming film experienced weather woes in Manali.

So much so that the entire unit survived on instant noodles to satisfy their hunger cravings for a fortnight.

A source says, “While shooting for the snow sequences at high altitudes, often the food arranged for the unit would get spoilt and cold just minutes after being prepared due to the extreme temperatures. The whole team, including our actors Kartik Tiwari and Nushrat Bharucha, has literally survived on the two-minute meal.”

Luv Ranjan, director of the film adds, “At the altitudes we were shooting, spotting local people itself was a rare thing, let alonefood. After a couple of days of shooting, these noodles became the staple diet of the unit. I think we have robbed Manali of all its noodles!”
