The makers of upcoming film Notebook have built a unique floating set for the Nitin Kakkar directorial starring Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan. Set in the late 2000s of Kashmir, the film focuses majorly on a school in the middle of a lake. For shooting the same, the makers erected a set which stood amidst water.
Interestingly, it took 30 days and 80 crew members working round-the-clock to create it. The extraordinary set has been designed by the two young girls Urvi Ashar and Shipra Rawal who worked as art designers on the sets of Notebook.
Talking about the unique set, the national award-winning director Nitin Kakkar said, “This is the first time that I have shot on a set created in a real-location. Kudos to art designers Urvi and Shipra that it never felt like a set. It was very difficult as it was floating, but it had become our home for over 30 days. The day it was dismantled, my heart sank. It has memories, that I will cherish for life.”
Recently, the makers have released the second love track titled ‘Laila’ which depicts the longing of Firdaus’ unrequited love featuring Pranutan. Earlier, Notebook’s first song titled Nai Ladga starring debutants, Pranutan and Zaheer Iqbal has garnered 7 million views. Not just the masses but the song has captivated the celebs as well
