The Rann of Kutch has turned into Bollywood’s most favorite destination, it is indeed a beautiful location with white sands spread out as along as your eye can see. For a movie maker this makes for great visuals. How can then television be left behind.
Recently it was the show Yeh Moh Moh Ke Dhaage made the most use of this gem of Gujarat. The show which is a story between forty-two-year-old Mukhi who is a village headman and twenty two year old Aru who is a bubbly modern urban girl is majorly shot in Gujarat. It was for some part of that shooting that the show visited the Rann of Kutch, the temperature there falls in the extreme, it Is very hot or its very cold. But the lead actor EIjaz Khan who plays the protagonist Mukhi was not all deterred by the heat.
In the scorching sun, he gave his best performance and even bonded with the camels he was shooting with A source on set said that, “One wouldn’t say for a second that Eijaz was not a local, the way he managed to work with the camels. He learned camel riding in fifteen minutes flat, not only that he was even very concerned for the camel’s well being not allowing anybody to hit the camel. He got so comfortable with the camel that he used to be able to make the camel sit, stand and even took him for a walk. What was surprising was that on occasion he even calmed the animal when it got restless due to the loud voices around it”
Eijaz Khan is known to give his best to a role and this stint in Kutch just proves that once again. The show is talked about for its unique content and presentation.
