Bhansali's ritualistic start for Guzaarish
Sanjay Leela Bhansali begins the shoot of his Hrithik-Ash starrer Guzaarish in Filmcity on Friday. Before the commencement of the film, Bhansali went to Ajmer Sharif to seek blessings for the project.
Close sources reveal that the director always seeks blessings at the famous dargah before staring a new film. Since Guzaarish has a lot of expectations after the debacle of Saawariya, Bhansali wanted to ask for the Lord's blessings before he before began the shoot.
Bhansali wants to beging the shooting in a hush-hush manner. An insider reveals the details of the first schedule, "Ash is back in town on Friday after her Raavan shoot and will immediately report to the Guzaarish set. Bhansali wanted to start the film earlier, but since Ash was shooting with Mani and Hrithik wanted some time to prepare for his role the film got pushed back."
Bhansali also has a tradition of having his mother Leela on the set of the first day of shoot. "He traveled to Ajmer Sharif with his mom and will bring her to Filmcity when he begins the shoot. She is also the first person who he narrates his scripts to."
After the Mumbai schedule, the unit will leave for Goa where the second schedule is to be shot.
